KANGAROO WORDS



KANGAROO WORDS


Hello Friends!
Do you know what Kangaroo is? Well, it is a large Australian mammal with a long stiff tail, short front legs and long powerful back legs on which it moves by jumping. Kangaroo is a marsupial, a type of mammal which is not completely developed when it is born and is carried around in a pocket on the mother's body where it is fed and protected until it is completely developed. But do you know what the word "Kangaroo" means? "Don’t know?" Strange! That is the answer! When the European travellers asked the aborigins, natives of Australia, about the animal which was hopping around the natives replied "Kangaroo!" i.e., they don’t know. The wise travellers took it to be the word for the name of the animal and started calling the animal by that name itself! Kangaroos carry their joeys in their pouches. What is a Kangaroo Word? A "Kangaroo Word" is one which carries within its spelling, in normal order, a smaller word which is a perfect synonym for itself.
