A phonetic alphabet is useful when you’re dictating the spelling of a word or two for or to someone, such as a name. It is particularly useful for distinguishing between B/D and M/N.  Learn the basics here.

The Nato Phonetic Alphabet is officially denoted as the International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet and is also commonly known as the ICAO Phonetic Alphabet. In a variation, it is also known as the ITU Phonetic Alphabet And Figure Code. It is the most widely used radiotelephone spelling alphabet:

Variation:

Within the ITU Phonetic Alphabet And Figure Code, words are assigned to the letters of the English Alphabet, so that critical combinations of letters and numbers are most likely to be pronounced and understood by those who exchange voice messages by radio or telephone, regardless of language differences or the quality of the communication channel.

The 26 code words in the Nato Phonetic Alphabet are assigned to the 26 letters of the English Alphabet and strict adherence to the prescribed spelling words – including the apparently misspelt “Alfa” and “Juliett” – is required in order to avoid the problems of confusion that the spelling alphabet is designed to overcome.

In a 1955 NATO Memo:

“It is known that [the ICAO spelling alphabet] has been prepared only after the most exhaustive tests on a scientific basis by several nations. One of the firmest conclusions reached was that it was not practical to make an isolated change to clear confusion between one pair of letters. To change one word involves a reconsideration of the whole alphabet to ensure that the change proposed to clear one confusion does not itself introduce others.”
