EERUL

LERTE
OTHEH

there!
Does that work? BEcause I'm not sure whether the words are meant to be made up or real words?!

Mr Woody said...

nice work Cheeky, Brainy and Howdy
- the words in my copied one are real latin words and they make a real sentence, as stated. the trick to the latin one is that the middle word is a special kind of word. look at it closely, tell me it's attriubtes and then tell me what words like that are called.

Sig said...

I would try one but I can't think of anything to do it on! Anyway, it is really cool!

Mr Woody said...

it's very difficult, sog. well done to those who tried - cheeky chicken did extremely well.
remember - the central word needs to be a palindrome, as identified by cheeky and stated in class by lachlan or tyler or whoever it was.
