We determine the structure of the quotient of the free group on 26 generators by English language anagrams. This group admits a surprisingly simple presentation as a quotient of the free group by 301 of the possible 325 commutators of pairs of generators; all of the 24 missing commutators involve at least one of the letters j, q, x, z. We describe the algorithm which can be used to determine this group given any dictionary, and provide examples from the SOWPODS scrabble dictionary witnessing…

TLDR
It is argued that the results point to some interesting differences between these three languages (or at least their current script systems): German, Korean, and Turkish.
