The Kpelle /kəˈpɛlə/ language (endonym: "Kpɛlɛɛ") is spoken by the Kpelle people in Liberia and Guinea and is part of the Mande family of languages.

The Lord's Prayer in the Kpelle Language:

Kunâŋ gáa ŋele sui, Tɔɔ ku iláai siɣe a maa waa. Tɔɔ Ikâloŋ-laai é pá, Tɔɔ ínîa-mɛni é kέ, Nɔii ma ɓɛ yɛ̂ɛ berei gáa la Ɣâla-taai. I kukɔ sâa a kuɣele-kuu tɔnɔ-tɔnɔ mii-sɛŋ; I ipôlu fe kutɔ̂ŋ-karaa-ŋai dîa, Yɛ̂ɛ berei kwa kupôlu fè la kuɓarâai ditɔ̂ŋ-karaa-ŋai dîai; Tɔɔ kutúɛ kufe pili yee-laa-maa su,Kέlɛ, i kukúla mɛni nyɔ́mɔɔ su.
