phonetics


I found this list yesterday whilst walking home from the beach. I know it's not a shopping list but I found it interesting all the same.

There were lots and lots of police in Brighton yesterday for the Labour party conference and I like to think that one of them must have been having trouble remembering the phonetic alphabet (and had to have his list corrected by his partner too).

Bravo indeed!

I was confused by the wishey one too at first. but then rosie reminded me that W = Whisky, so i think it's all down to some wonky spelling.
