Most people will tell you "NO" and with good reason, as explained elsewhere in this discussion. But the answer is actually yes, under carefully controlled conditions, which few of us are capable of creating safely. However, if the cell has discharged to the point where the entire electrode has dissolved, it's doubtful it can ever be recharged. Some cells which have been damaged by deep discharge can actually be rejuvenated over a longer period of charging.
I would not recommend this, but it would be dishonest of me to declare that it can't be done. You are simply dealing with something very dangerous, and potentially life-threatening if you don't know exactly what you're doing.
Hysteria isn't the best recipe for safety, but excellent awareness is.
