Tag Archives: word that reads the same right side up as upside down

Trivia Thursday

Welcome to Trivia Thursday.

Word Nymph has declared this Language Trivia week. Every day of this week, Monday through Saturday, I’m throwing out a question. Have you been playing? If you know the answer or would like to take a guess, do so as a Comment to that day’s post or simply wait until next Monday, when all answers will be revealed. Good luck!

Today’s question:

We know that a word that is spelled the same forward and backward is a palindrome. What is the name of a word that reads the same upside down as right side up, or the same in a mirror, when certain typography is applied? Can you provide some examples?
