    What do these four words have in common: banana, assess, bozzo, uneven?

    If you removed the first letter, they'd all be palindromes.

    If you take off the first letter and put it at the end of the word, it spells the same word backwards. I'm not sure if that's what you were saying.

    No, it never propagates if I set a gap or prevention.

    No it's not. A palindrome is spelt the same forwards as backwards. No letter shifting required.

    but would cease to be real words (if bozzo is a word)
    Kirksey's answer still leaves you with a real word

    you could equally have said copy the first letter to the end, and they would all be palindromes

    "bozzo" is not a word. Neither are the others after you move the first letter to the end. 🙄

    You still haven't got it: the four 'words' in the first post all consisted of a single letter followed by a palindrom, not just a palindrom.

    Where are the palindromes? A palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same forward or backward. Anana is not a word... ssess is not a word... ozzo is not a word... neven, I'm not sure about. I'll give you one out of four.

    that's why I pur 'word' between quotes. They still are letter palindroms, nevertheless.
