A Minor Alteration I would like to Make to the English Language.
I find it unfortunate that “palindrome” spelled backwards is “emordnilap” and not something cool, like say, “palindrome”. I suggest that we start using the work “racecar” in place of “palindrome” and start using the word “palindrome” in place of “racecar”.
I think this would be more appropriate. And anyway, a “palindrome” sounds kinda like it could be a kind of racecar anyway.
Also, if it is not too much to ask, I think that “an exercise in pedanticism” should hence forth be called “pedanticise”!
