"I'm getting ready for baseball," said Tom ad-MIT-edly. (see another Tom Swifty)

KO'd by the previous pages yet?  Hopefully not. In this section, we'll be dealing (21? ... or is that another miner joke? - see Superstiton Gold) with material that may be a little harder to grasp, but that may come in handy later on. 

DT REGROUPS
So why is DoubleTake (us), regrouping Palindromes (and other word plays) into new categories and renaming them under what we call DoubleTakes™? First of all, DT feels that the names everybody has been using for "word plays" are way too complex and hard to remember.  Second, the "old" word play categories themselves need more more classifying and sub-groups than the present system. Actually there really is no system, it just grew accidently over the years (almost like the Internet). And last, just because we want to and we can.

SPECIAL NOTE: DT USES SOME SPORTS NAMES TO CATEGORIZE SOME TYPES OF DOUBLETAKE™ HUMOR, BUT NO GREAT KNOWLEDGE OF SPORTS IS REALLY NEEDED TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPTS. NO SPORTS FIGURES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS WEBSITE.

Overall, (jeans again?)

  • A HIT is any word or phrase that can be spelled in either direction, forwords or backwords.
  • Both spellings and meanings are the determining factors in the DT classification theme/scheme.
  • We have sub (DT 109) grouped these HITS into the following major league divisions:

    SINGLES

    DOUBLES

    TRIPLES

Just for you Monday Night Football fans, we also threw in (the towel) some

REVERSES

DOUBLE REVERSE

TRIPLE REVERSE

NOTE: WE DON'T COUNT A "HOMER" AS A REGULAR HIT. A HOMER is any word play that we have not already categorized. This kind of play on words, words on plays, etc., has been called everything from Spoonerisms, to Medical Greeks, to Metathesis, to Pennsylvania Dutch's, to infinity, to ad infinitum. Click here to go to HOMERS.

   HITS CLASSIFICATION THEME / SCHEME / DEFINITION

SINGLE: any word that spells a different word when read in either direction.

REVERSE: a word or expression that spells the same thing forward as it does backwards.
DOUBLES: the same as a Single, (in that it spells another word backwards) but in addition, the meanings of the two words are connected in some way.
DOUBLE REVERSE: occurs whenever a word spells a different word when read backwords and the two words mean the opposite of each other.
TRIPLE: occurs when a word's spelling and meaning remain the same when reversed. In addition, any word that may have been in one of our other HITS may also be included.
TRIPLE REVERSE: occurs when a word or phrase can be read in more than one way or from more than a just one point in space. The basic TRIPLE REVERSE is a 180° rotation," mean"ing (pun intended) that it reads the same upside down and right side up.
