    Did you know that if you take the world eat and take the first letter, move it to the back and you get the past tense for that word?

    Another is the words race car spell it backwards and its the same words!

    Do you have any fun stuff you can do with words?

      That's called a pallindrome. The longest palindrome in the Oxford English Dictionary at 12 letters is "tattarrattat", coined by James Joyce in Ulysses.

      i always found the origins of words fascinating, and i think it's fun discovering what's behind certain words.
