Phonyetics

Friday 11th December 2015

I always laugh when I hear people struggle to spell words phonetically, when they say random words starting with that letter instead of the standard (if dull) NATO phonetic alphabet.

I've been collecting a list of confusing words that don't start with the sound of that letter, just to confuse people further.

I'd like to find some better words for some of the letters, if you've got any more add a comment below! 

Thanks to Bryan for his suggestions, do you have any more? Leave a comment below.
