V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: a word, phrase, or number that reads the same, whether read forwards or backwards



Tips: Palindrome is derived from the Greek palindromos, which means "recurring." A palindrome is a word or phrase that is the same when read either forward and backward because the letters recur both ways.

Usage Examples:

She amused herself by thinking up palindromes like "dump mud" and "straw warts." (phrases that are the same read backward as forward)

Her telephone number, 123-4321, was easy to remember because it formed a palindrome. (number that's the same backward as forward)

The word "level" is a palindrome. (word that's the same read backward or forward)

The palindromes "mom" and "dad" are two of the first words learned by toddlers. (words that are the same read backward as forward)
