    This is a tough one. Good luck, brothers......

    What's the name of the language, spoken in the world today, that is unique in the fact that it is the only one that is spelled the same either forward or backwards?

    98 points, guys. Give 'er!!!!!

    Ewe is a Kwa language spoken in Ghana and Togo by approximately three million people (Capo 1991). Ewe is part of a cluster of related languages commonly called Gbe, stretching from eastern Ghana to Western Nigeria. Other Gbe languages Fon and Aja.

    For your information :p:

    Oh, I'm sure the language is no longer used since 1991 was like ancient times:rolleyes:

    We came up with the names of 2 other languages that are "unique" just like the one you were looking for:doah:

    Maybe a palindrome needs more than 4 letters? :dunno:

    BTW, the way the African continent goes, there's a REALLY good chance that 15 years later the people who speak the language don't exist anymore.:deal:
