    Banana

    I was asked this question:

    Is there a term for adding the first letter of a word onto the end of a word so the word can be read backwards.
    e.g, banana, ananab.
    I have no idea what the term is if it exists, but someone has probably dreamt up a word for it. Does anyone know?
