Well, when I started this page, there weren't, as far as I know (or knew), any other palindrome lists on the web. Now I haven't really updated this list in almost a year, although I've received a few hundred email messages with additions and praise. And now there are several other palindrome sites, so I've decided to stop maintaining my list. If you still want to see it, it does still have a lot of palindromes. So here it is.

The word palindrome is derived from the Greek palíndromos, meaning running back again ( palín = AGAIN + = RUN). A palindrome is a word or phrase which reads the same in both directions. Some simple examples are: RACECAR DEED LEVEL PIP ROTOR CIVIC POP MADAM EYE NUN RADAR TOOT Words like LIVE and STRAW (which read EVIL and WARTS backwards) are not themselves palindromes but the "phrases" LIVE EVIL and STRAW WARTS are. A palindrome is not necessarily a single word. The longest single English word in common usage which is a palindrome is REDIVIDER , although the contrived chemical term DETARTRATED is two letters longer. In Finnish there is a 25-letter palindromic word: SOLUTOMAATTIMITTAAMOTULOS which means the result from a measurement laboratory for tomatoes, although technically it is a compound of four words. There is also the equally long SAIPPUAKUPPINIPPUKAUPPIAS which means soap cup trader.

This section is limited to single-word palindromes only. I appreciate contributions to this page, but I am not including sentences or phrases which are palindromes, since there are other websites which list large numbers of them. Principal contributors to this section are Dan Tilque, Stuart Kidd, and Philip Bennett. TATTARRATTAT is the longest palindrome in the OED2, which calls it a nonce word. The OED2 shows a single use in 1922 by James Joyce in Ulysses : "I knew his tattarrattat at the door." KINNIKINNIK is the longest palindrome in W3. The OED2 shows these variant spellings: kinnikinnic, kinnikinnik, killegenico, kanickanick, kanikanik, killickinnick, kin(n)ikin(n)ick, -kineck, -kennic, kinnakinnec. Audubon L. Bakewell IV reports the word is usually spelled kinnikinnick. The OED2 defines the term as "a mixture used by North American Indians as a substitute for tobacco, or for mixing with it..." or "any of the various plants used for this, as the Silky Cornel, Cornus sericea, Red-osier Dogwood, Cornus stolonifera, and esp. Bearberry, Arctostaphylos Uva-ursi...." The word is derived from an Algonquin word meaning "mixture." DETARTRATED is listed by Guinness

Those Amazing Palindromes
Shareef Bacchus
It is not totally clear when palindromic numbers really came into being nor is it clear who deserves the credit for creating the numbers. Suffice it to say that the numbers have some fascinating properties that bear investigating. Palindromes were first used in language to define words or lines that read the same backwards or forward. The word is of Greek origin coming from "palin dromo" which translates approximately to "to read back again." Examples of palindromes include: "Madam, I'm Adam"
"Roma tibi subito motibus ibit amor."
They have also been called Sotadics after their reputed inventor Sotades, a Greek poet who lived around 300BC. Palindromic words were also used in other languages including English. The longest palindrome in English probably is: "Dog as a devil deified
Deified lived as a god"
Two other well known palindromes are "Lewd did I live, evil I did dwel"
and Napoleon's famous reputed quotation: "Able was I ere I saw Elba."

For our newsletter and special teacher promotions.
"Madam, I'm Adam." What's strange about this sentence? Try reading it backwards. It reads the same way forwards and backwards. A word, phrase, or sentence that reads the same forwards or backwards is called a palindrome. For example the word wow is a palindrome. See how many three-letter words you can think of that are palindromes. Try for ten. Then see if you can think of at least one four-letter and one five-letter palindrome.
three-letter palindromes: bib, dad, did, eve, gag, mom, nun, pop, pep, tot four-letter palindromes: noon, deed, peep, sees five-letter palindromes: radar, level, rotor Maybe you can think of more!

I've been fascinated with palindromes ever since I was a kid and my dad gave me a book entitled Palindromes and Anagrams by Howard W. Bergerson. Most of the palindromes in these lists are in that book. In addition to my own discoveries , I have managed to write two palindromic poems ( one has palindromic lines, and the other is a word unit palindrome). The following lists contain some of my favorite palindromes. John PS - Palindrome comes from the Greek words "palin" (again or back) and "dramein" (to run). So if you read that backwards, it translates loosely into "to run back." But ya gotta read it backwards, ya know. Legend:

PALINDROMES Fun by Brownielocks
Palindromes are read the same forwards and backwards letter by letter.
The word palindrome isn't one. LOL But words like noon, toot, peep are. Ironically, the word Palindromes when done as an anagram becomes:
"Splendor am I!" The year 2002 is also a palindrome number.
It will not happen again in your lifetime?
The next palindrome year is 2112.
So have a Happy New 2002! Also... 911 is a palindrome number if done in Roman Numerals.
History of the Palindrome
If you never heard of one until now, don't feel bad. Palindromes aren't as common as anagrams (see our page on those) and there is not really a lot of historical information about them. My guess is that literacy was only among the wealthy, aristocrats or religious people in the past. And, IMHO palindromes are much more challenging intellectually than anagrams are. So they seem to be a secret among the old scholars of the past on their origins. Only samples remain, many of which have authors who use pen names. Perhaps it was an embarrassment to be able to compose foolish verse? Palindromes are done in several languages, with French being the assumed language of origin since it was for the anagram as well. I gave you simple palindromes above as a fast example. But there are many more that impress me with their brilliance. Most of them were written in the 18th century which also tells me that without the distraction of television, radios, computers, movies etc. people had more time to THINK and create. And so they did.

Automatically Created Palindromes
Palindromes are spelled the same both forwards and backwards. There are many great palindromes, and many collections of them exists just search for "palindrome" on any web search engine. However, the palindromes below are entirely original. Furthermore, most of them, as indicated, were created with the AI Palindrome Discovery System (a homework project ( including Java code ) for exploring search strategies in our Artificial Intelligence course). To my knowledge, this is the first automatic creation of palindromes. Read more about the project in our published cs education paper Also, you are urged to check out this animated palindrome New: Moreover, check out this other animated palindrome applet, by Michael Birken. It shows the same palindrome in a cool circular 2D animation that would only be possible for a palindrome. Symmetric "Kargo" , by Michael Birken. You cannot argue that this does not say Kargo. You cannot argue that this is not symmetric (looks the same in a mirror). 'Course, it is not a palindrome, but Michael was thinking a lot about palindromes when he made it, and he works at Kargo with me. Automatically created palindromes.

Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach Palindromes (Part 1) Madam I'm Adam... The word 'PALINDROME' comes from the Greek word palindromos , which means 'running back again'. A palindrome is any word, line or even complete poem which reads the same backwards as it does forwards. 'Madam, I'm Adam' is one of the best known palindromes but Eden's Adam never uttered it to his palindromic Eve (I have this from a very reliable source). Nonetheless, this form of wordplay is ancient. The epigrams of Nicodemus of Hereclea (300 BC?) and other ancient Greek writings contain palindromes. SOTADICS is another name for palindromes, after Sotades, a poet of this period who employed them frequently in his satirical poetry. Early ones reverse words...

19. Palindromes
Commentary on palindromes plus a 306word palindrome.
The dream which occupies the tortuous mind of every palindromist is that somewhere within the confines of the language lurks the Great Palindrome, a nutshell which not only fulfils the intricate demands of the art, flowing sweetly in both directions, but which also contains the Final Truth of Things. Alistair Reid Palindromania is not a disorder but, rather, an evolutionary, passionate effort to cobble letters into order and truth. I say "evolutionary" because I believe that in our species is evolving a heightened wonderment at and facility with the universe of letters. We are getting better at making the alphabet dance. Richard Lederer, The Vocabula Review , January 2002, Vol. 4, No. 1
They're very hard to write. My only major effort in this field is the following 306-word masterpiece, Dog Sees Ada , composed in 1991. You may expect a grander effort, to be titled Seid Ada (German for "To Be Ada") in 2002. I have a rough idea for the plot of Seid Ada but I haven't yet figured out how it will end. Writing a long palindrome requires patience and a keen eye for hidden words. If you've ever wandered the aisles of a grocery store, noticing the "lonely" in "Tylenol," the "nosy" in "Tyson," or the "soiree" in "Cheerios," there is a decent chance that you, too, could compose such a work.
