Practice sentences for letterforms a, d, g, q
« on: July 10, 2016, 10:25:52 AM »
I have been having trouble making my letterforms based on "a" consistent.  So, I came up with these practice sentences so I could work on that group of letters.  I thought they might be useful to others, so I am posting them here.  If I come up with sentences for other groups of similar letters (n, m, h; b, p; o, e, c; etc.) then I will post them on the board as well. About half of the sentences are rather prosaic, the rest are....not.   ::)


  • "Egad," gasped Gandalf, "Nazgul have invaded Bag End!"
  • The gaggle of eggheads declared the abundance of deranged candidates fatiguing.
  • Agatha craved a daiquiri.
  • Antiquated language made Brandon appear ignorant.
  • The gallant passenger gave his seat to the elderly lady.
  • The hero laughed at the villain's weapon's meager flow of magma.
  • The parade passed the large grandstand
  • The inadequate candidate can't handle a barrage of inquiries.
  • Nagging rarely does any good.
  • Early Americans migrated over a land bridge near Alaska
  • The class learned that salamanders are amphibians.
  • Adequate signage was not in abundance
  • The lab manager lauded the handling of the hazardous waste. (This is only funny if you have experience in a lab.  For a glimpse of reality, check out this Piled Higher and Deeper comic).
  • Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts. (I can't take credit for that one, it was the opening of a song I learned at camp when I was a kid.)
  • The Big Dipper appears as a ladle made of stars
  • Alexander was glad he had hidden the cabbage in the garbage.
