A form of wordplay invented by Howard Chace in the 1950s. It consists of sentences and longer texts in which the entire text has been replaced by near-homophones. One of the best known examples is the story Ladle Rat Rotten Hut.

Anguish Languish was repopularized in the 1980s by a few puzzles and contests in Games Magazine which focused on making or deciphering some text in Anguish Languish.

The name "Anguish Languish" is Anguish Languish for "English language."

CURRENTLY, THE COPYRIGHT ON THIS BOOK HAS BEEN EXPIRED FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS.
