Anagrams and Palindromes

ANAGRAMS:

Any word or series of words created from all the letters of another word.

Anagrams are an enjoyable way to deconstruct spelling to see words from multiple perspectives.

A recommended tool for anagramming is to write the letters in a circle: which is the first step to stop seeing the word as one concrete unit.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Decimated can be reorganized as medicated, or me cat died….

Altitude becomes latitude.

Presbyterian becomes best in prayer.

Schoolmaster becomes the classroom.

Astronomer becomes moon starer.

Have fun!  Take your name, anagram away and connect the new words with new definitions of yourself.

FOR EXAMPLE:

I am Paul Fisher … or am I? …..

Hula P. Fries – the Hawaiian Fast Food Magnate

Frau Lipshe – the charming German landlady

Hiper Fasul – the overactive Saudi Arabian

 

PALINDROMES: sentences which can be read from left to right and from right to left as the same sentence.

 FOR EXAMPLE:

Able was I ere I saw Elba.

A man, a plan, a canal: Panama.

AND A FAVORITE WITH CHILDREN:

Rats live on no evil star.
