Recently, I came across the following sentence :
Was it a car or a cat I saw?
What is interesting about this sentence is that it’s a palindrome. That is to say, ignoring any spaces or punctuation, it reads the same backwards as it does forwards.
A palindrome can be a sentence, a phrase, a word or even a number. Doing a bit of research, it is easy to find many examples. Some of my favourites are
- Don’t nod
- Top spot
- My gym
Of course, there are many others. Please feel free to list any interesting ones you find in the comments below.
