Happy Friday, everyone! And welcome to another Fact or Fiction Friday.
Today’s trivia question is: The Finnish language has three of the world’s longest palindromic words (Refresher: A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backward or forward.) Fact? Or Fiction?
Drum roll, please… This one is :
The Finnish language does indeed have three of the world’s longest palindromic words. They are (in no particular order):
1) ‘saippuakivikauppias’ – a soapstone seller,
2) ‘saippuakuppinippukauppias’ – a soapstone trader
3) ‘solutomaattimittaamotulos’ – the result from a measurement laboratory for tomatoes.
See you next week for another Fact or Fiction Friday!
