aibohphobia

great addition at language log to the recent linguisteresis post on palindromes:
the Urban Dictionary claims aibohphobia is a technical term for the irrational fear of palindromicity. The etymology will raise a smile. Just stare at the word for a few seconds, and it will reveal itself to you.
