An anagram is a word or phrase made up of letters that you can rearrange into another word or phrase that, ideally, is connected to the original run of letters. For example, the letters in the phrase "great help" can be rearranged to form the word telegraph, and, indeed, when it was invented, the telegraph was a great help in communication. Now try your hand at rearranging the letters in each of the numbered items on the next page to form a word related to the original phrase.

4. moon starters

The purpose of eNotes is to help you understand things better, not to do assignments for you. Therefore, instead of just giving you the answers, I will try to give you hints that will allow you to get the answers.

First, think about what sort of a person would ask someone if they wanted some stew. You would think that it would be someone who works at a restaurant, right? The answer here is a word for a female person who works at a restaurant.

Second, what you need to now here is that Erin is another name for the island of Ireland.

The third anagram is, in my view, the hardest. This anagram gets made into one word that refers to what ambassadors and other foreign policy people do. This is what happens when people go and do things like negotiating with a foreign country. The answer for this is a word that is related to the word “diplomat,” which is what we call such people.

Finally, we need a word that has to do with people who study space. This is a word that begins with an “A” and is defined as people (plural) who study space and the celestial bodies that exist in space.

With this information, you should be able to get the answers to these anagrams!
