First of all, this boy is super cute and incredibly smart. Just 6 years old, Levi realized that while there is a such thing as a palindrome which is a word spelled the same forward and backwards but there isn’t a name for something that spells two different words forward and backwards.
Here is an example:
“Stop” spelled backwards makes a different word, it spells “Pots”. There is no name for this in the dictionary so Levi wants to name it after himself and call it a “levidrome”. Even actor William Shatner is on board with this movement and the Oxford English dictionary has it on their word watch list. See a tweet from Shatner HERE.
