We're all familiar with the official standard international phonetic alphabet, which was a very good idea to avoid confusion and mistakes. Referring to a letter by its phonetic alphabet counterpart probably should be used more when speaking over the telephone, especially when dealing with all those very similar sounding letters.
The Miles Brothers Corp decided to come up with our very own official standard international phonetic alphabet, and we encourage you to do the same.
Here it goes:
A as in Amsterdam. B as in Brenna.
C as in Cogstar. D as in Dr. Miles.
E as in Elephant. F as in Fargo.
G as in Garlic. H as in Honda.
I as in Imagination. J as in James.
K as in Kit. L as in Led Zeppelin.
M as in Mylah. N as in North Dakota.
O as in Okolemaluna. P as in Ping Pong.
Q as in Quagmire. R as in Reagan.
S as in Sam. T as in Tom.
U as in U2. V as in Vacation.
W as in Willy's Wonka. X as in X-wife.
Y as in Yes. Z as in Zen.
