Dear Ambrosia,
I posed this question a few weeks ago but never saw it posted. Perhaps I just missed it. When a word spelled backwards is the same word, it is a palindrome. Is there a name for words spelled backwards creating other words? ie: god - dog
- Vallery

Board Question #3783

-- Misaneroth
A: Dear Vallery,

Yup, you missed it. Props to Misaneroth for answering it. I find the answer kind of disappointing, though.

Like your name, by the way. One of my favorites. Although I find I prefer the more French-looking spelling "Valerie." But that's just me.

Also, I'm curious. If you are the same person who asked the q before, why the sudden gender change in nyms?
