    Are you sure?
    I believe there is more than one.
    "p" and
    "lay"
    Perhaps even more than these two...

    You're joking, and I'll be serious:

    morpheme - the smallest unit of meaning in a language
    letter - the smallest unit of a word

    A letter can convey the smallest unit of meaning in a language though.
