Sixty words for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given one is Tenet!



Hannah, Ava, Izzi, and Eve are attending the Ailihphilia Society, its tenet; to further the use of reversible words and sentences.

Today they are discussing whether the word for a palindrome should itself be a palindrome.

They decide to hold a ballot.

“Rise to vote sir”, says Pip to Bob, don’t nod”.

“Wow”, shouts French Élle, “top spot … non!”



*I italicized the palindromes to make them easier to spot!

In case you are wondering, ailihphilia is an old English word for an interest in palindromes!

    Until now, I hadn’t given much thought to the magic of palindromes. But the cleverness of this palindromist sent me to reading in rabbit holes. However, I must use caution because palindromia is the recurrence of a disease. More fun from Keith. 🙂

    sorry Keith but today, January 1st, my brain isn’t working very well, too much celebration last night but I am confident it’s extremely clever as always 🙂
