Mirrored Palindromes and
Word Unit Palindromes
are two types of Palindromes which are words or phrases that read the same in both directions, e.g. EYE, or RACECAR, or MADAM I'M ADAM.
Here are a few good ones:
• Do geese see God?
• Was it Eliot's toilet I saw?
• Murder for a jar of red rum.
• Some men interpret nine memos.
• Never odd or even.
The Palindromes form an integral part of the English Language. Acquaintance with the vocabulary of the English language is a necessity for effective expression either in written or in an oral from.
Here are few Mirrored Palindromes.
These are palindromes which are graphically reversible. Not all letters in mirrored ones necessarily have symmetry about a vertical axis (A, H, I, M, O, T, U, V, W, X) since some letters are (more or less) mirror images of others (e.g. L and J). Therefore a mirrored one is not necessarily also a traditional palindrome. Punctuation and spaces cannot be ignored when creating this type. When reversed A TOYOTA becomes ATOYOT A which, strictly speaking, is not the same. WOT TOW, although fairly meaningless, is a valid mirrored one. Of course, with this type of palindrome, it is important whether upper or lower case letters are used: bid is a mirrored one, but BID is not.
