Take the first letter of each word and put it at the back, read the word backwords and it reads the same


Hope you enjoyed it.

I would have expressed it a little differently, but yes, drop the first letter and each is a palindrome.

Not quite Birdy, you have to move the 1st letter to the back to get a sort of palindrome

I thought it was a trick puzzle at first, because a list of words can't have anything "in common" except with another list or lists. A better way of of putting it would have been 'what do the words in the list below have in common?"

Thank you Jack.
When I did it I thought it was a bit of a challenge till the proverbial penny dropped.
