The term used for the fear of palendromes. Sadly, the word aibohphobia is, in itself, a palendrome.

n. fear or phobia of palindromes. Etymology: palindromic form of "phobia" - "palindrome" itself from Greek παλινδρώμοσ meaning "back-running", ie. "a running back or recurrence". In Greek -φοβία (from φόβοσ meaning "fear") the emphasis is on the "i"; in English usage on the "o". Pronunciation in IPA: {aibofob'i:a} (international) or {aibo(ü)f'oübia} (English).
Scene: café
Date: 1 February 2010
Context: we enter in the middle of a conversation between two people who do not know each other very well

Eve: (hesitantly) I should mention - I am aibhophobic.
Otis: Aibohphobia!? With a name like that?! Are you on the level, madam?!?
Eve: *coughs* *eyes bulge*
Otis: (mischievously) kinda reminds of the time some guy kissed me off with "Sit on a potato pan, Otis!".
Eve: *scratches head uncontrollably*
Otis: (rubbing chin thoughtfully) still, that wasn't nearly as bad as when Delia failed to borrow or rob the Evil Olive.
Eve: *now very agitated, punches Otis accidentally*
Otis: wtf?! Dammit I'm mad!!!
Eve: I'm sorry, this date really isn't working out for me *leaves*
Otis: (to self) somehow I just knew we shoulda rescheduled.

Phil: "Look: I know you just met Mary, so let me clue you in on something that may not occur to you until it's too late and you've already stepped in it: Mary has aibohphobia, so try to avoid using palindromes in your sentences, OK?
