Holistic Phonetic Alphabet

Effective Living

Summary. When communicating over the phone, it is increasingly common to have lengthy strings of letters and/or numbers that must be read clearly. For example, with hardware serial numbers, software activation keys, e-mail addresses, or lengthy website addresses. If a single letter or number is incorrect, the information is useless. For this reason, phonetic alphabets have been established.

Usage. When using a phonetic alphabet, one replaces letters with words. The Resources for Life Holistic Phonetic Alphabet conveys words (concepts, principles, and themes) of environmentalism, peace, nutritious eating, earth harmony, and transcendence of time, religion, gender, and politics. Choose and use the words that appeal most to you.
