A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of characters that reads the same forward and backward, ignoring spaces, punctuation, and capitalization. The word itself is derived from the Greek roots "palin" meaning "again" and "dromos" meaning "direction." Palindromes are often used in puzzles and word games for their symmetrical nature.
