It will also serve as chronology of the events as it follows Levi's quest in making levidrome an accepted word by the popular dictionaries (Oxford, Merriam-Webster, etc.).


Naming Twins Video

Posted on September 23rd, 2019


Another levidrome video hits YouTube.

Hats off to Dominic Fayard for creating his "Naming Twins" video. In his video, he states, "The goal was simple. To create a video unlike any other." In his video, Fayard compares the 2 proposed words currently being suggested for defining "A word that spells another valid word when read backwards". Those words being semordnilap and levidrome. He endorses levidrome. In the video, he hilites Aidan and Nadia, twins in the video made in a "lego movie" style.

Way to go Dominic! Thanks for spreading the word. Great Video!

Note: We found out about the video on October 10, but posted it with Sep 23rd in our News section to keep in line with the chronology of levidromes.



Shatner Asks @Oxfordwords About Levidromes, Oxford Responds

Posted on September 4th, 2019

Twitter tweet

We are slowly approaching the 2 year point from when the Levidrome video hit YouTube. We aren't the only ones who noticed.

William Shatner, an celebrity advocate for levidromes, tweeted to OxfordWords on August 28, 2019.

Hey @OxfordWords any updates on #Levidrome being added? It's been in popular use for nearly 2 years now.

And Oxford responded on August 30, 2019

Hello @WilliamShatner. Thank you for getting in touch. Levidrome doesn't yet meet the criteria to be added to the dictionary, but it is on our tracking list for potential inclusion in the future.

In our eyes that is a positive response. The fact that it is still on a tracking list means that it is still on Oxford's radar.

As usual, keep on spreading the word. #Levidrome
