ANAGRAMS

Graham gives us some more “look-a-like” anagrams to torment us.

I hope that you enjoyed last month’s anagrams that become very closely related to the original when solved. Here are a few more:

ADOLF HITLER – Hated for ill

ALPHABETICALLY – I play all the ABC

AMERICAN – Main race

BATHING GIRLS – In slight garb

CHOIRMAN – Harmonic

COMBINE HARVESTERS – Betrim corn sheaves

FRENCH REVOLUTION – Violence run forth

MANY A TRUE WORD

SPOKEN IN JEST – Men joke and so win trusty praise

Here are a few you might like to try:

MADAME CURIE

MATERNITY HOSPITAL

PATRICK MOORE

REMUNERATION

SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON

SCHOOLMASTER

A TRIP ROUND THE WORLD

Last month’s prize winner was our editor, Ray Thompson, with five correct out of eight. Well done in a very difficult competition. Here are the answers:

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL – He’s the top letters manager

THE MORSE CODE – Here comes dots

ADVERTISEMENTS – i.e. Tradesmen’s TV

BRED AS ACTOR – Broadcaster

CHARITY’S IN IT – Christianity

COMPOUND INTEREST – Sum to do in percent

NO CITY DUST HERE – The countryside

Twelve plus one – Eleven plus two
