The ISO basic Latin alphabet is a Latin-script alphabet and consists of two sets of 26 letters, codified in various national and international standards and used widely in international communication. By the 1960s it became apparent to the computer and telecommunications industries in the First World that a non-proprietary method of encoding characters was needed.
The Unicode block that contains the alphabet is called “C0 Controls and Basic Latin”. 1965-04-30: Ratified by ECMA as ECMA-6 based on work the ECMA’s Technical Committee TC1 had carried out since December 1960. IEC standard for characters in Unicode 1. IEC 10646″ without the separation into two parts. Hindu-Arabic numerals and letters of the ISO basic Latin alphabet on a 16-segment display. In ASCII the letters belong to the printable characters and in Unicode since version 1.
0 they belong to the block “C0 Controls and Basic Latin”. Not case sensitive, all letters have code words in the ICAO spelling alphabet and can be represented with Morse code. In X-SAMPA and SAMPA these letters have the same sound value as in IPA. Note for Portuguese: k, w and y were part of the alphabet until several spelling reforms during the 20th century, the aim of which was to change the etymological Portuguese spelling into an easier phonetic spelling.
These letters were replaced by other letters having the same sound: thus psychologia became psicologia, kioske became quiosque, martyr became mártir, etc. This avoids confusion with row numbers using Arabic numerals. For example, a 3-by-3 table would contain Columns A, B, and C, set against Rows 1, 2, and 3. Z is AA, followed by AB, and so on. These are double-digit “letters” for table columns, in the same way that 10 through 99 are double-digit numbers. The Greek alphabet has a similar extended form that uses such double-digit letters if necessary, but it is used for chapters of a fraternity as opposed to columns of a table.
Such double-digit letters for bullet points are AA, BB, CC, etc. Internationalisation standardization of 7-bit codes, ISO 646″. On April 30, 1965, Standard ECMA-6 was adopted by the General Assembly of ECMA. This page was last edited on 8 April 2018, at 02:56. The NATO phonetic alphabet, officially denoted as the International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet, and also commonly known as the ICAO phonetic alphabet, and in a variation also known officially as the ITU phonetic alphabet and figure code, is the most widely used radiotelephone spelling alphabet. Strict adherence to the prescribed spelling words is required in order to avoid the problems of confusion that the spelling alphabet is designed to overcome. It is known that 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 reconsideration of the whole alphabet to ensure that the change proposed to clear one confusion does not itself introduce others. The same memo notes a potential confusion between ZERO and SIERRA is overcome when following the procedures in ACP 125, which specify the use of the procedure word FIGURES in many instances in which digits need to be read. The same alphabetic code words are used by all agencies, but each agency chooses one of two different sets of numeric code words. This section needs additional citations for verification. For instance the message “proceed to map grid DH98” could be transmitted as “proceed to map grid Delta-Hotel-Niner-Ait”.
Using “Delta” instead of “D” avoids confusion between “DH98” and “BH98” or “TH98”. In addition to the traditional military usage, civilian industry uses the alphabet to avoid similar problems in the transmission of messages by telephone systems. This article contains IPA phonetic symbols. The final choice of code words for the letters of the alphabet and for the digits was made after hundreds of thousands of comprehension tests involving 31 nationalities. The qualifying feature was the likelihood of a code word being understood in the context of others. For example, football has a higher chance of being understood than foxtrot in isolation, but foxtrot is superior in extended communication. The pronunciation of the code words varies according to the language habits of the speaker.
