How are madam and level alike?

By Debra Dobbins

A palindrome is a word, phrase or sentence(s) spelled the same both forward and backward. Palindrome comes from a Greek word meaning “running back,” according to Webster’s.

One-word examples include eke, ere, eve, ewe, madam, level, refer and redder. An example of a phrase is top spot, according to thinks.com. The site also lists these sentences, among many others:

Flee, elf! Dot sees Tod. Dee saw a seed. Ma has a ham. Was it a rat I saw?
