What is the commonly used expression below?

TEFOPERAELLS

PUFORPRAOSLLES


Answer

"FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES"

1. The words FOR ALL are lodged in the words "TEPEES", which is another word for TENTS. Thus, FOR ALL is "IN-TENTS" (INTENTS) making up the part of the expression: "For all intents"

2. The words FOR ALL are then also lodged in the word "PURPOSES", thus adding the second part of the expression: "and purposes," (because now the FOR ALL is in TENTS AND in PURPOSES)

'FOR ALL IN TENTS [INTENTS] and PURPOSES'
