With this site I hope to enlist your help in discovering and displaying any/all letter-unit PALINDROMIC (stand-alone, single) SENTENCES in the English language.
MockOK.com represents the largest palindrome collection made freely available which is also up-dated (at least) monthly and referenced fastidiously. So far I've archived more than 9,500 PALINDROMIC SENTENCES, but I am sure there are thousands more! By the way, palindromes can be numeric (not my interest!), phrase (A man, a plan, a canal-Panama--also not my interest), sentence, prose (more than one sentence), or poem/play structured (see Steven Fraser's poems at http://evillydinedragons.com/). Also, the reversible unit can be the letter (the case here) or the word (for more discussion of these other forms of palindromic word-play, see Commentaries-I)
My interest happens to be single sentence palindromes (with subject and verb; or, in rare cases, clearly implied verb.) (Please, also see Commentaries-III)
In addition, I have a special interest in how certain palindromes 'pivot' (see Commentaries-II for discussion of this feature.) or contain "multiple middles" (see Commentaries-IV.)
Please have fun, try your hand, and submit any newly created single, sensible, stand-alone palindromic sentence(s) you would like! E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org Please identify yourself, if you want your palindrome(s) to be referenced--as you will see I have attempted to faithfully do with the alphabetically listed (then numerically referenced) palindromes in this site.
*( You may also submit to email@example.com if you have a link you'd like made to your site.)
