How language learning could get even more interesting? With word plays smile

This month we had a special day, February 2nd 2020, named also the palindrome date. A Palindrome Day happens when the day’s date is symmetrical and can be read the same way backward and forward.

Palindrome is not only connected with numbers, but also with words and sentences, for example: “Able was I ere I saw Elba”.

Beside palindromes there are also other forms of word playing like:

Pangram is a phrase or a sentence that contains all 26 letters of the alphabet, “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy sleeping dog”.

Anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase, for example: elbow - below, state - taste, a gentleman - elegant man etc.

Antigram, these words or phrases form antonyms when rearranged, violence – nice, love; funeral – real fun.

In aceasta luna am avut o zi speciala, 02.02.2020, numita si data palindrom. O zi palindrom se intampla atunci cand prima jumatate a datei este simetrica cu a doua, si poate fi citita in acelasi fel de la stanga la dreaptasi de la dreapta la stanga.

Palindromurile nu suntconectatedoar cu numerele, ci si cu propozitiisicuvinte, de exemplu in limba romana: tot, Ana, asa, bob etc.

Pangramaeste o frazasau o propozitie care continetoatecele 26 de litere din alfabet, de exemplu: “Vândmuzică de jazz șihaine de bun-gust în New-York și Quebec, la preț fix”.

Anagrama este un cuvantsau o propozitie formata prin rearanjarea literelor din alt cuvant sau propozitie, de exemplu: Romania – om in rai sau armonia.

Antigrame, sunt cuvinte sau propozitii care formeaza antonime atunci cand sunt rearanjate.
