Back to the mathimatical formation of the English language. Palendromes as a generality do no exist except in coincidence. For something to exist it must exist in all language to be part of language. Every language has objects, things, ideas, places, people and so on. But it is the things they don't have that become lost in translation.
Indeed. We have no word to translate Japanese mono-no-aware, "appreciating the sadness of existence."
Or Votic aiguttoa, "to yawn repeatedly."
