    If you add the 1st letter of each to the end of the word, they become palindromic.

    Is it that there are no words that rhyme with them?

    and there was me thinking that if you removed the first letter you'd have a palindrome........

    The answer I was given was to add the letter at the end. So, DannyColin was spot on. ;)
