PALINDROMES
A
 palindrome
is a word or sentence that reads the same forward as it does backward. Theword
 racecar
and the name
 Hannah
are more interesting and illustrative.Neither spaces nor punctuation are usually taken into consideration when constructingsentences that are palindromes -- one of the most famous palindromes is "A man, a plan, a canal,Panama" -- but when the spaces are properly positioned as well, so much the better. An examplewould be the also famous palindrome "Able was I ere I saw Elba," purportedly spoken by Napoleon,referring to his first sighting of Elba, the island where the British exiled him.Palindromes are a type of 
 palingram
called
letter palingrams
. A
 palingram
is a sentence inwhich the letters, syllables, or words read the same backward as they do forward. The sentence, "Hewas, was he?" is a word palingram, because the words can be placed in reverse order and still readthe same. The sentence, "I did, did I?" is not only a word palingram but a letter palingram (orpalindrome) as well.A number of interesting palindromes are given below for your amusement.
