    Not a Palindrome

    If you take the first letter from a word, place it at the end of the word, and it spells the same word backwards, what is that called? I know it is not a palindrome, but for the life of me I cannot think of what it is called. Can you help?

    Re: Not a Palindrome

    Anarchic digression: Wouldn't it be neat if 'NOT A PALINDROME' was a palindrome? Sadly, it's not. In this universe... The best I can do is to suggest a ton weight with the words NOT A TON written on it. Oops, wrong forum.

    It's called a palindrome with a letter stuck on the beginning.
