Abstract

In the November 1990 Word Ways, Dave Morice's Kickshaws column gave pride of place to Cheater's Palindromes of various writers, most notably those of Jeff Grant. Many readers consider that 'cheater' is a modifying noun to suggest that some of the words in such palindromes are spurious. However, cheating in this context really implies tantalizing, as the contentious words are either obscure or of foreign origin.
