A palindrome is a word or phrase which reads the same in both directions. The word palindrome is derived from the Greek palíndromos, meaning running back again (palín = again + drom–, drameîn = run). Some simple examples are:

RACECAR               EYE               NUN             RADAR              LEVEL              POP

Longer palindromes are:

Do geese see God?

Madam, in Eden I’m Adam

Was it Eliot’s toilet I saw?

A man, a plan, a canal: Panama
