Reversals
Bookmark and Share

This section has a series of word puzzles. In each puzzle, there are two words written together, but both of the words are hidden. This is because the two words can be reversed to produce two different phrases or compound words. There is also a clue designed to help you guess the meaning of the two words. When you've guessed them, or even if you don't want to, you just mouse over the left of the definitions and you'll see them. Have fun and come back for more!
