See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common?

1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven
7. Assess

Such a question!! Do I get an ice cream bar for this??

Found the following answers from the web:

If you drop the first letter, the remaining letters are symmetrical around an interior letter

-------------------------------------------------
coupland | Guest February 25th, 2007 - 9:05 pm

If you drop the first letter then the remaining letters are the same whether you read them forward or backward. I win, I want my lollipop.

------------------------------------------------------
Scott | Guest February 25th, 2007 - 9:47 pm

they all have 2 sets of 2 of the same letters in the word.

------------------------------------------------------
Bored. | Guest February 25th, 2007 - 9:48 pm

Groups of repeating letters, not including the primary letters, centralized around either a single letter or a pair in the middle of the word.


One could also describe the pattern as — besides the initial letter — 5 letter palindromes.

------------------------------------------------------
Joe | Guest February 25th, 2007 - 11:01 pm

They would all be palindromes if their first letter were dropped.

------------------------------------------------------
Adam | Guest February 26th, 2007 - 12:01 am

Second letter and last letter always the same

------------------------------------------------------
David | Guest February 26th, 2007 - 11:37 am

two sets of two of the same letters (explanatory skills down the drain.. XDDD)


Banana -> n and a
Dresser -> r and s (or s and e, or r and e)
Grammar -> r and a (or m and a, or r and m)
Potato -> o and t
Revive -> e and v
Uneven -> n and e
Voodoo -> o and o

------------------------------------------------------

Two pairs of doubled letters each. The pairings are symmetric either about another letter or about their own centers. Not sure if there is anything else.

------------------------------------------------------
FunnyBoy | Guest March 6th, 2007 - 10:00 am

I don’t know if the 2nd Comment is the same as to what I’m going to say, but ohwell – Dropping the first letter and putting it on the end…then the word is the same backwards as it was forwards (before dropping the letter)

------------------------------------------------------
Angelo Francisco B. Veloso | Guest March 21st, 2007 - 4:17 am

Each word has a pair of identical letters

------------------------------------------------------
equalizer | Guest November 10th, 2007 - 7:12 am

In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter,


place it at the end of the word, and then spell the


word backwards, it will be the same word.

Hi Futari,
Did you create the word "seeked"?
I have not sought this word in the dictionary.
When will you email me that LOLLIPOP?

Long time no "see and hear", Glotynn.

(OOPS! Pardon me!)
Thank you for reminding me of my loose grammar. I'm now retrieving the word "seeked" that I coined and have its normal form "sought" restored.



PS "Why emailing 'YOU' the lollipop and not to "SoutheLily?"
