I've been wanting to write this post for a while, because palindromes are so fun. In fact, my daughter's name is a palindrome: Hannah! Think you've figured out what palindromes are all about now?
If not, no worries. A palindrome is a sequence of characters (in writing, it would be letters) that read the same forward as backward. In math, a number like 2002 or 404 would be a palindrome.
In the English language, we have a plethora of word examples that are palindromes.
Examples of Palindrome Words
Here's a quick list of some palindrome words:
But some people combine multiple words and even sentences as palindromes.
Here are some examples of palindrome phrases:
- taco cat
- race car
- evil olive
- pull up
- Sir Tetris
- "Code nine, Doc!"
- "Madam, I'm Adam!"
- A man, a plan, a canal: Panama
As mentioned earlier, palindromes are fun for the wordy-inclined. "Aha!" Now, you can follow the "liar trail" to the "top spot!"
Have fun trying to puzzle out your own palindromes!
