THE SPELLING ALPHABET

alphabetThe spelling alphabet is a set of 26 words used to stand for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. It is particularly useful for people with different language backgrounds or to spell out words in oral communication in general (for example to spell a complicated name or an address in order to avoid misunderstandings), especially during a phone conversation. The most widely used spelling alphabet is the NATO phonetic alphabet, also used in communications between a pilot and the control tower.
To spell “SPEAKUP”, for example, you would say: “S for Sierra, P for Papa, E for Echo, A for Alpha, K for Kilo, U for Uniform, P for Papa.”
