'Set up son? Scam set, asserts Bob': Semi-Automatic Generation of Bilingual Palindromes

Résumé

We analyse the problem of composing bilingual palindromes, for which the only high-quality example known is more than 150 years old. We formalise the problem and introduce multiple partial solutions for computer-assisted palindrome composition, as well as a comparison between the composition difficulties in 15 different pairs of languages.
