What is a Palindrome?A palindrome is a word or words that can be read the same way backwards as they can be read forwards. Palindromes should not be confused with anagrams, which are words that share the same letters. For example:
- "Dr. Awkard" is a palindrome because its letters read the same forwards as they do backwards.
- "Dormitory" and "dirty room" are anagrams because they share the same letters.
