We all learned about palindromes – words that are spelled the same forward and backward – in school.
They’re forever stuck in my head because of a short story I read at the time called Hannah is a Palindrome (which, now that I think about it, might be more about bullying than palindromes), but you, like me, probably haven’t thought much about it since.
So, there’s a good chance that you never realized these 15 words are palindromes before now.
The more interesting knowledge in my head, the better – that’s my philosophy.
So were any of these surprises to you? I have to say that racecar was completely out of left field. How did I not see that all these years? Craziness!
Do you have any you know of that aren’t in this list that are surprising?
