if you use 'union' dictionary from Qat you get

abba acca adda affa akka alla amma anna atta beeb boob cttc deed ecce elle esse ette goog immi issi keek kook lccl maam naan noon oppo otto peep poop sccs sees svvs teet toot tsst uttu

so I suppose it depends what you are decoding.

Seems to me that any palindromic, 4 letter word should suffice:

Here's a list that includes words like: poop, peep, noon, naan, abba
