I did a little of that years ago, before I had any way to sample and
reverse speech on the computer. I used an ancient reel-to-reel tape
recorder, and turned the reels around so that the tape ran in reverse
(after rewinding the tape), although the sound was muffled since the
magnetic band was on the wrong side of the tape. It wasn't an original
idea, though; I got the idea from a TV program (I think it was called
"That's Incredible") where someone had learned to speak English backwards.
I've also had an interest in Reverse Japanese, and some grammatical
aspects of languages such as Minza have been based to some extent on
Japanese grammar in reverse order.
