Trap a part!!!

It isn't very often you find someone trying to get your attention with a vague title as this but we'll talk about that later.
Let's talk about palindromesWe use them daily yet we don't even notice.

What is a Palindrome?

A palindrome refers to any word, phrase,sequence or number that reads the same when spelled either forward or backward. The word palindrome has it's origin in Greece from the Greek word Palidromos. Palidromos is a combination of pali meaning again, and dromos meaning route or direction. 
Contrary to what some might have thought, palindromes aren't restricted to words only. Numbers, phrases, and even sentences can be palindromic.

What functions do Palindromes perform?

As annoying as this may sound, they perform no function. None! They do nothing. In English, Palindromes aren't more important than other words that only make sense when read in one direction. They are not like function keys, special characters or anything like that. They are just palindromes, which explains why many people get by using them without even knowing.
