Palindrome Examples

A palindrome is a word or a number or a sequence of words that can be read the

same way from either direction, be it forwards or backwards. Punctuation and
spaces between the words or lettering is allowed.

Samples of Palindromes
The longest single word palindrome in the English language contains nine letters
and is stratagem" meaning mega tarts. Other fun palindromes exist such as:

Multiple Word Palindromes

Was it a cat I saw?
Eva, can I see bees in a cave?
No lemon, no melon

History of the Palindrome

The word palindrome is derived from the Greek palin, or back and dromos
or "direction." The actual Greek phrase alluded to the backward movement of
the crab. Palindromes date back to about 70AD, when they were first found as
a graffito buried in ash at Herculaneum.
This first known palindrome was in Latin and read sator arepo tenet opera
rotas which means either:

The sower Arepo holds the wheels with effort.

The sower Arepo leads with his hand the plough.
Not exactly a grammatically correct sentence, but still pretty fun.
Palindromes were also found in the ancient Greek language and in
ancient Sanskrit, so obviously people have been having quite a lot of fun with
these unique words for quite a long time.
Another aspect of the palindrome is that it is able to reproduce itself. If a word is
formed from the first letters and then from the second, the third and the forth it
can then be arranged into a word square. A word square can be read in four
different ways either horizontally, vertically from and from left to bottom right or
visa versa.

Types of Palindromes
Character by Character
The most common of English palindromes are those that are read character by
character, for instance level, rotor and race-car. Character by character means
that each character of the word matches, and the word can be spelled the same
forwards or backwards.
Madam Im Adam is a famous character by character palindrome. Palindrome
examples also exist in phrases or sentences where punctuation, capitals and
spacing are ignored. For instance Sit on a potato pan, Otis. One of perhaps the
most famous palindromes that exit in this form is Able was I ere I saw Elba.

Name Palindromes
Palindromes exist in names too; a past Prime Minister of Cambodia was named
Lon Nol.

Word Palindromes
Some palindromes use words rather than letters, for example First ladies rule
the State and state the rule: ladies first. There, instead of each character
matching, the whole sentence can be read backwards and forwards. The
individual letters dont match, but the whole words do.

Number Palindromes
Palindromes arent just a word game. They are also found in numbers and are
studied in recreational mathematic. In fact, a palindromic prime is known as a
palindromic number that is a prime number.
Palindromes are even seen in molecular biology. Many molecular lengths
between 4 and 8 nucleotides are palindromic as they correspond
to nitrogenous sequences that read the same forwards as they do backwards.

Other Types of Palindromes

Palindromes are seen in dates, and even in acoustics when a phrase once
recorded and played backwards sounds the same. Palindromes are also found in
modern and classical music pieces.

Long Palindromes
The longest known palindrome in the Oxford Dictionary is tattarrattat. The
longest palindrome in use today is said to the Finnish word
saippuakivikauppias which means soap stone vendor. A derivative of this is
the palindrome saippuakalasalakauppias meaning soapfish bootlegger.
