Palindromes and Semordnilaps

Recommended Posts

A palindrome is a word, phrase, sentence or any sequence of characters that reads the same backwards as it is forward.

 

However, did you know this?:  'palindromes' spelled backwards is 'semordnilap,' which is a word itself.

What's a semordnilap? It's a word that, when spelled backwards, forms a completely different word.

 

Use this thread to share a palindrome and/or a semordnilap. Enjoy! :D

 

Palindrome:  level

Semornilap:  desserts/stressed
