A falseagram is a mnemonic in which a plausible but invalid word (e.g. SLUTTIER) is associated with a valid anagram (e.g. SURTITLE). A good falseagram should map an easily-spotted phoney like POTTABLE to a difficult word like TABLETOP. This page is not a comprehensive list and you are encouraged to add your own.
