One of the first steps to being a proper word geek, talking backwards is another uneeded language that is sometimes useful as a code. Sdrawkcab!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Pick Your Word
Start off easy, like "shop" or "cat".
Step 2: Split It Into SOUNDS.
I repeat, SOUNDS. Not letters, nor syllables, SOUNDS. In the case of SHOP, SH(sh)-O(awe)-P(p).CAT, C(k)-A(like the A in THAT)-T(t). Get it? If not, you were probably never destined to be a word geek.
Step 3: REVERSE Them.
I repeat, REVERSE. Like SHOP, P(p)-O(awe)-SH(sh).CAT,T(t)-A(like the A in THAT)-C(k).
Step 4: Recite It.
Shop is now "Posh"(NOT Pohs) and Cat is pronounced "Tak".
Step 5: Things Needed to Continue in Speech...
If you want to have a conversation, you need either... A:Really, Really,Really, Really,Really, Really,Really, Really,....Actually, I would rather continue my Instructable then fill the page with "really's", so I'll just say you need to memorize the dictionary backwards, which I bet even vos Savant can't do(no offense, Marilyn), or B: Quickly think up the world backwards, which is a great deal easier, but still hard. So practice.Practice, practice, practice. Soon you'll be able to think up conversations.Like muah(me). I'll come up with some more steps later, though. For now, !lla ot samtsirhC yrrem yrev A
