This alphabet started in the military, but is now used throughout the English speaking world by pilots and tele-operators to work out which letter is being said when you are talking. For example if I wanted to say, ADPTE, which would be much
clearer than I could say Alpha, Delta, Papa, Tango, Echo
The main use for this is when spelling names or codes. Try this with a number of
unusual names and see if your partner can guess.
