REVERSES
(AND VICE VERSES)

Now wasn't that (SINGLES) simple? Be careful, cause it's just starting. Guess who's coming to dinner? It's our PALs, the DROMES. In this part, DT lists a few expressions that have been historically called Palindromes. (Have Pun Will Travel?) Isn't Palindrome a terrible name? We're just going to call this type of DT a REVERSE.

A REVERSE is a word or expression that spells the same thing forward as it does backwards.  Here's the first REVERSE.

LEWD I DID LIVE, & EVIL DID I DWEL...backwords spells...LEWD I DID LIVE, & EVIL DID I DWEL.
 
John Taylor, also known as the Water Poet, (Gotta be a "yoke" there somewhere, but we wouldn't want to "buffalo" you.... but then were just "winging" it.) came up with that first verse REVERSE around 1600.  It took several hundred MOOR years (Spanish time) before another REVERSE appeared. 

Here's a few more REVERSES for you to bite your tongue on. (Is that  anything like chewing the fat?)  So let's get on with it, or as Phil "Bilko" Silvers would say, ABOUT FACE!

Okay, now you've seen some of our REVERSES. Or by now you probably think we're DROMING (Palindromes) it into your heads. You may consider some of these great and others as nothing special. Before you (Hear come de) judge them, try to come up with one of your own.  It may change your perspective.

There is a story that a mother whose last name was CRAM, named her son MARC. 

The HIT List 
   HITS INTERNAL LINKS
   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.
