Why Should I Care about Palindromes?

Palindromes are created for fun or for the challenge. For teachers, writing palindromes can be a useful way to encourage students to play with letters and words. However, they must be careful not to involve students suffering with aibohphobia (a fear of palindromes), a condition first recognized by Dr. Awkward in 1881 in Allagalla.
