Palindromes

It is quite apt to do a blog post about palindromes today of all days (11/11/11).  The definition of palindrome is:

pal·in·drome/ˈpalinˌdrōm/

Noun:
A word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward, e.g., madam or nurses run.

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction, with general allowances for adjustments to punctuation and word dividers. 
 
The puzzles and games section of the Oxford Dictionaries website provides educational and fun ways to test our existing knowledge of English.  It is an excellent website for those people who are learning English as well as for native speakers of English.  You can test your comprehension and knowledge of palindromes by clicking on the link provided below:
