Morse Code – SOS

The Morse code for a ship in distress is SOS. This signal has sounds (short ones sound like di, and long ones sound like daw) associated with each letter. So, S is dit dit dit , O is daw daw daw, and S again is dit dit dit. Each of the three letters has three sounds! Pretty cool. Put them together and you get dit dit dit daw daw daw dit dit dit. (My Dad was a communications officer on submarines).
