Actually, I'd like to ask my Profs...

Now, don't cheat, try to figure it out before you look at the answer below.

Can you figure out what these words have in common?.(Answer below)

Banana
Dresser
Grammar
Potato
Revive
Uneven
Assess

Go back and look at them again; think hard.






Answer:
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.
Did you figure it out? Even if you did'nt don't worry most people don’t, cheer up you are a Very Normal People.

They have one more common feature: May 27, 2007

If you take off the first letter and not place it at the end, they'll all lose their meaning but will be perfectly symmetric, like many things in our life.

They have something more in common May 27, 2007

In all the words, there are at least two letters which occur twice or more.
