Word of the day: Semordnilap
While researching palindromes for another post, I managed to find a variant of them. This kind of word or phrase makes sense when reversed, but unlike palindromes do not read exactly the same forwards as they do backwards. The more astute among you might have noticed that semordnilap is actually the word palindromes spelled in reverse.
Take a look at some examples of semordnilaps, also known as heteropalindromes, semi- or half-palindromes, reversgrams, mynoretehs, word reversals, or anadromes:
|diaper / repaid||straw / warts||star / rats|
|god / dog||lived / devil||desserts / stressed|
|war / raw||samaroid / dioramas||deliver no evil / live on reviled|
Can you think of any more?
