Abstract

A definitive palindrome consists of a word or phrase plus its definition (loosely speaking) which together form a palindrome, like Susan Thorpe's diary -- yr. aid (97-186). The ideal case is a pair of synonymic reversals like pat-tap, the first to appear in Word Ways (74-172). Such reversals deserve a palindromic name. I offer "smynonyms" -- SyMmetrical sYNONYMS, or, in anagrams, M synonyms, the M representing symmetry -- M mystery in the palindromes -- I "M" as splendor.
