  • Re: tawnier rein water.

    Seed:  water
    Time:  5 minutes
    
    I first explored the re-taw split of water, ignoring words that end in "re" (there are 905), and focusing instead on words that start with "taw". I quickly took a shine to tawnier and the palindrome soon fell into place. With "re" at the beginning, it looked like a legal title and I decided to stop there.
  • smug spit tips gums

    I was in the bathroom and spaced out on my mouthwash for healthy "gums", and reversed it into smug. Then I played on the reversal thing on the Palindrome Composer until, I came up with "spits", which is the last step in mouthwash. Having slight dyslexia helps, because I reverse words anyway.
  • Was Ana Nym, my nana saw.
    - Ray N. Franklin, © 11:14 21 May 2020
    Seed:  ananym
    Time:  1 minute
    
    I chose ananym as my preferred term for a word that makes a different word when reversed. On a whim I reversed ananym and saw "My nana," which caught my attention (even though my family never used the endearment 'nana' for our grandmothers). Then I decided to include an ananym in the palindrome. The finished composition came to me in a flash.
    
    Why did I choose ananym from the nineteen terms (anagram, ananym, antigram, drow, half-palindrome, heterodrome, inversion, palinode, recurrent palindrome, retronym, reversagram, reversal, reversal pair, reversible, reversible anagram, reversion, semordnilap, sotadic palindrome, and word reversal, according to The Dictionary of Wordplay by Dave Morice) already in use? It was not random.
    
    First, I eliminated the multi-word terms because I wanted a single word. Then I looked at the palindromic potential of each of the remaining terms. I also considered the nature of the term's usage, whether authoritative sources accepted the term, and the word's etymology. Only ananym satisfied all five criteria.
    
    Bonus reason:  "Ban ananym" is also "banana-nym".

Compose Palindromes

Have you ever tried to compose a palindrome? It can be hard unless you happen to be a stable genius. I'm no genius and I failed to ever write an original palindrome, until I created Franklin's Palindromedary. I did it to help my underperforming brain. And it worked! The computer did the hard work, and I just supplied a little creativity. I'm sure you are more creative than me and that the Palindromedary will work for you. Give it a try today.
