In the 18th century, an earthquake destroyed most of the town.It was rebuilt by the Sultan who changed the name into the local Arabic which is Ad-dar Al Baidaa', although Arabic also has its own version of Casablanca (كازابلانكا, Kāzāblānkā).An Arbanitai were mentioned in Attaliates's History as subjects of the Duke of Dyrrachium, near modern Durrës."Southern Land" in New Latin, adapted from the legendary pseudo-geographical Terra Australis Incognita ("Unknown Southern Land") dating back to the Roman era.First appearing as a corruption of the Spanish name for an island in Vanuatu in 1625,"There is no probability, that any other detached body of land, of nearly equal extent, will ever be found in a more southern latitude; the name Terra Australis will, therefore, remain descriptive of the geographical importance of this country, and of its situation on the globe: it has antiquity to recommend it; and, having no reference to either of the two claiming nations, appears to be less objectionable than any other which could have been selected."(Antarctica, the hypothesized land for which the name Terra Australis originally referred to, was sighted in 1820, and not explored until decades after Flinders' book had popularized this shift of the name.)Oz, a colloquial endonym: Likely a contraction from above.The other letter necessitating disused symbols is J; the available symbols are J (for iodine, I), Jg (for argonium/hafnium, Hf), or Jo (for joliotium/dubnium, Db).Here is one of many possibilities using Jo: A self-enumerating pangram, or a pangrammic autogram, is a pangram which describes the number of letters it itself contains.
The leading Moroccan companies and international corporations doing Moroccan business have their headquarters and main industrial facilities in Casablanca.
As well as containing some rather amusing gems, the pangrams in languages other than English can be occasionally useful for designers of all sorts.
For that reason I have resurrected the page of pangrams here, pretty much as it was in Wikipedia.
This also gave rise to their other sarcastic nickname, the Army Safety Corps. When the ASC acquired their well-earned Royal prefix in 1918, to become the RASC, their nickname was changed to Run Away, Someone's Coming!
The ASC, due to their good pay, comfortable conditions and comparative saftey, were regarded by the infantry as not proper soldiers. Also used at the start of a gambling game such as Crown and Anchor, inviting others to join in before the start of proceedings.
