Hey! Diana, what’s an anagram?

Those who enjoyed the palindrome in the last issue may find these anagrams (thanks to Diana Ang of Biology Dept) interesting too. An anagram is a word or phrase made by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.

(Someone out there either has way too much time to waste or is deadly at Scrabble.) Rearrange the letters …..

Dormitory —Dirty Room

The Morse Code —Here come Dots

Slot Machines —Cash Lost in ’em

Animosity —Is No Amity

The Public Art Galleries —Large Picture Halls, I Bet

A Decimal Point —I’m a Dot in Place

Eleven plus two —Twelve plus one

Contradiction —Accord not in it

Incidentally, Diana, if you can arrange the same letters of an anagram one more time, would it be called a Di-ana-gram?
