  These palindromes were selected to display the simplest type of palindrome construction. A word such as 'debut', that creates an alternate English word when the letters are read in reverse order, is sometimes waggishly referred to as a 'SEMORDNILAP'.

  For more complex types of palindromes, further head-scratching may be needed to understand the basis of construction. Please see the selected examples that will be displayed on the posts of June 20 and June 21.
