im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards

Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!

An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:

  • desserts & stressed
  • drawer & reward
  • gateman & nametag
  • time & emit
  • laced & decal
  • regal & lager

And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.

Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.

With all of the words we say we’ve stopped using some particularly wonderful ones

When on earth did people stop using most of these words?

Wh-what do you mean? These are the words I use on a daily basis!

I use these words rather often, I did not know that they had become out of date.
