This number is a fantastic example of a palindrome number, but we also have palindromic words like redivider, deified, civic, radar, rotor, kayak, reviver, racecar, madam, level, and even refer.
The palindrome definition: a word, sentence, verse, or even a single number that reads the same backward or forward. It derives from ancient Greek roots that translated, mean “running back” (palin is “again, back,” and dromos, “running.”) The word appears to originate in English based on these roots in the early 16th century.
Palindromic dates are normally considered lucky in several world cultures, although much depends on the exact date-writing convention. A big day in the United States of America, which puts the month before the day, is rarely the same as a big day in the United Kingdom (Britain), where the day usually goes before the month.
The 22022022 ambigram
The definition: the ambigram is a word or pattern that retains meaning when viewed from a different direction or different perspective. Specifically, a rotational ambigram will read the same when viewed upside down, while a bilateral or mirror ambigram is one that reads the same backward and / or forward.
Interesting about ambigrams are the tattoos. Ambigram tattoos became more popular when they prominently featured in Dan Brown's bestselling novel, Angels & Demons.
Who invented the ambigram? Professor John Langdon, the 67-year-old American who in the nineteen seventies is considered to have co-invented the "ambigram", a word or sequence of words that conceal symmetry.
The longest ambigram was written by James Joyce as he wrote the longest palindromic English word in his book entitled Ulysses.
The famous French novelist George Perec also wrote a 5,556-word palindrome called “Le Grand Palindrome”.
Finally, English author David Stevens wrote an entire palindromic novel that was over 58,000 words long!
