What word can be spelled forward, backward or upside-down and can still be read from left to right?

Answer

You can spell the word "NOON" (when written in capital letters) forward, backward or upside-down and you will still be able to read it accurately from left to right.

Though it is not possible to spell other English words besides "NOON" backward, forward and upside-down and end up with the same result each way, one word that reads the same spelled either forward or backward is "MOM." (If turned upside down, the word reads as "WOW.") A word such as this that retains the same meaning when it is viewed from two different directions, angles or perspectives is known as an ambigram.
