What palindromic word has the most different meanings? The answer to this intriguing question requires some research. There are many common palindromes with four or more letters -- DEED,NOON, PEEP, SEES, TOOT, CIVIC, LEVEL, MADDAM, etc. -- but their scope is somewhat limited. The solution must surely lie at the three-letter level where 'dromes abound.
