This past Monday, we asked you what racecar and kayak have in common.
Many thanks to James Holmes, Managing Director, Unison Site Management, who correctly noted they are both palindromes – words or phrases which are the same spelled backwards and forwards. Thanks James!
Level, eye, civic, noon, radar and tenet are other palindromes and so is the phrase: “was it a cat I saw”. BTW, how many of you knew the only language in the world whose name is a palindrome is Malayalam, a language spoken in parts of India?
For you serious trivia buffs, the longest known palindrome in the Oxford Dictionary is “tattarrattat”. Ba da bing, ba da boom!
