What these words have in common?
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.
I received the above words list and the answer from a friend. It take me awhile before I am convinced that it works.
Here is my illustration of the two-steps reversed process:
Banana --> ananaB --> Banana
Dresser --> resserD --> Dresser
Grammar --> rammarG --> Grammar
Potato --> otatoP --> Potato
Revive --> eviveR --> Revive
Uneven --> nevenU --> Uneven
Assess --> ssessA --> Assess
I am sure if we check through dictionary and use the same method to pick up words, there will be more words of the same kind!
