Looking at the flag pictures for the alphabet at this site with lots of Marine terms:
made me remember an old article Cecil did on the different names for the letters used by various organisations such as alpha, bravo, charlie, delta, etc. used by the Marines. He did list only English variants as I remember but I am sure that alphabets must have been created for other languages, which can be very helpful when talking to a foreigner. For example, ‘e’ is pronounced like short ‘a’ in Lithuanian, ‘i’ is pronounced like long ‘e’. Unfortunately, there is no official alphabet; everyone makes up their own.

Can any of our foreign language speaking readers add the alphabets for their languages? Thanks.

i think this site contains them all.
scroll a good bit down.


Great site. I am just going to have to become web proficient. Anyone else wishing to post should check this site first.
