Antianagramophones are dictionary words created by the rearranging of syllables of another word and/or phonetically reversing at least one of the syllables.
For these, when I say "reversing the syllables", I mean that you would pronounce them in the reverse of how they are spoken, like a recording you play backwards (e.g. election => nishkeluh).
I've created a few, and they're a lot harder to come up with than I first thought. So far I've only got it worked out with some two-syllable words. If you make any with three or more syllables, let me know.
- napkin => panic
/nap - kin/ => /pan - kin/ => /pan - nik/
- neighbor => brain
/nay - bur/ => /bur - nay/ => /bur - ain/
- uncle => knuckle
/un - kull/ => /nu - kull/
- mucus => music
/myoo - kihs/ => /myu - sik/
- chicken => kitchen
/chik - in/ => /kich - in/
- aligned => denial
/uhl - ined/ => /dni - uhl/
I realize not all of the above are as clean as can be, but I think it's an interesting idea and that there are more out there. Also, and this may be a sticking point, a lot of it depends upon your own pronunciation of a particular word.
But in any event, I find creating them is a good way to get my mind looking at words and how they're put together.
