When you reverse a word, do you treat "ch" and "sh" as one character
or two? I'm of the opinion that they're single characters, and thus
this should be "dalokosh":
(It's the Russian for "chocolate" - "шоколад" - transliterated to
English/Latin - "šokolad" or "shokolad" - and then reversed.)
But that's an extremely difficult thing to explain to your average gamer...
