And the word "monosyllabic" is now "muh."

So long as people don't confuse it with an expression of disdain or disinterest commonly seen in webcomics.

Perhaps we should have come to the nano gathering tonight, I'm curious if radar plural is now sradars.

I'm more concerned with the etymology of "palinilap".

No problem. The original Greek palíndromos breaks down to "running back again." I think you'll find that meaning in the word "lap" also.

Ahh... Yeah, I know what a palindrome is... I was more worried about the "palin" part of it, if you get my meaning. ;)

Understandable. Nobody wants to think about Sarah Palin's lap. Perhaps "emordrome" is preferable?

Much better. And much less disturbing. :D
