2D Palindrome Squares

In these word squares, a word can be read in either direction in every row and column. Here is a selection of 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, and 6x6 palindrome squares in English.

The two 5x5 palindrome squares below were discovered by Daniel Austin (The Fun-with-words.com Editor) in November 2000.

Farad and Daraf are physical units relating to capacitance. A serac is a pointed part of a glacier. Aleda, Elena, and Adela are names.

Can you find a 5x5 square which does not contain any proper nouns or obsolete words?

This 6x6 square was also discovered by Daniel Austin. It includes the obsolete palindromic word esssse meaning ashes (in the Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd Edition).

The first known 5x5 palindromic square is in Latin and dates back many centuries. For more information, see our History of Palindromes page.
