    Hello everybody,

    I'd like to share this list with anyone who may be interested in it. It's not very practical, but having a look at it may be fun.
    By the way, does anybody know how this kind of words are called in Chinese? Thank you in advance.

    Good luck and good health.

    Hi sobriaebritas,

    thanks a lot, your list is very long! I think they're called "颠倒词". For example, they have them on this page, but they are much fewer than on your list:

    Cheers, Shun

    As you can see, I've deleted the list. The reason is that there are duplicate instances. I hope to upload it again some time soon.

    Because I like Excel, I fixed it for you. Now it's 3955 words.

    That's very kind of you, Shun, thank you very much; and thank you for the link as well. I like Excel too, but I wouldn't know how to go around fixing the list.
    Have a nice weekend.

    You're welcome! Excel does need a macro for sorting the pairs, too.

    Same to you, Shun

    If the pair 㧑㧑 㧑㧑 is deleted, there are 3954 pairs left. (There might be more cases like this one. We'll see.)

    Yes, maybe there are 20-30 cases like this. But tell me, did you generate this list automatically based on Pleco data?

    Hello Shun,
    The data come from Wenlin's version of the ABC Dictionary. The list itself is a subset of the list of disyllabic words present in that dictionary, a kind of by-product of a long-term project I'm working on in my free time.
