Sequential Words


Susan Thorpe


Readers of Word Ways are familiar with palindromes, tautonyms, Miami Words (WW200014) and Ladders Words (WW2002279). In Sequential Words, sequences of these genres, rather than entire words, are considered. The idea is to look for words made of 2 or more such sequences. The sequences which make the word may both/all be of the same genre: SUSANNA, with the letter pattern 121 3443, consists of 2 palindromic sequences - a palindromic sequence followed by a Miami Sequence.
