    Because of the "longest palindrome" thread, I decided to create this

    The aim is simple: Find the shortest palindrome possible but there are rules.

    -It has to be a sentence (that makes sense).
    -It cannot have a proper noun in it.

    Unfortunetely, I don't have any ideas so I can't start you off

    Avoiding single words, and ignoring American ones:


    1) Add 'A'.

    2) Tie it.

    This one follows the rules, although it's Latin:

    I!

    OK. If we're going to be like that, how about:

    Yes, but "e" is not a sentence, at least not in any language I know of.

    Following your rules, don't you mean both my initial suggestions?

    No. The rules were:

    -It has to be a sentence (that makes sense).
    -It cannot have a proper noun in it.

    The rules didn't say anything about the language. "I!" is a sentence which makes sense if you know Latin, and it doesn't have a proper noun in it.

    I'm adding an extra rule.

    -The sentence has to be MORE THAN 1 word long
