Two good addresses are www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/palindromes.htm and www.fun-with-words.com/palin_example.html - most of the ones I've quoted so far come from one or the other. Here's another: 'Niagara, O roar again!' And yet again (though I warn you, you need a very silly sense of humour to like this): 'Rettebs, I flahd noces, eh? Ttu, but the second half is better'.

Good news, palindrome fans, I've found some good ones! These and many others are at http://rinkworks.com/words/palindromes.shtml and http://www.derf.net/palindromes/old.palindrome.html

Lived on Decaf, faced no devil.

Stop! Murder us not, tonsured rumpots!

Gateman sees name, garageman sees nametag.

As I pee, sir, I see Pisa!

Drab as a fool, aloof as a bard.

Ed, I saw Harpo Marx ram Oprah W aside.

Reviled did I live, said I, as evil I did deliver.

Hi Guys, sorry to be facetious (!!) but isnt the longest word without vowels in the English language rythms? :-) (I saw that someone had entered it as rythm) :-)

I was actually looking for the three English words that contain the vowels in the correct order but stumbled upon this so had to be picky ! :-) I think that the 3 English words with the vowels in the correct order are Facetious, Abstemious and Arsenious, can anyone tell me if this is correct, or if there are perhaps others and therefore the wether the whole question is in fact correct ! :-)

Andy
