Old English should not be in the derivation, the Old English word for November was Blotmonaþ.

From RFC[edit]

I'm just wondering whether the second definition be under a "Translingual" header - aren't Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, etc, in use worldwide? The same would then apply to the other 25 entries, of course. — Paul G 09:06, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

No, other languages use other words. Alfa, bravo, charlie, etc., are worldwide only inasmuch as English is the international language of airline pilots. —Stephen 17:22, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
For example, Appendix:Russian phonetic alphabet. —Stephen 17:51, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
Swedish or Finnish might be a better example since they use pretty much the same characters, of the same script anyways. I'm surprised there's no French or German though, or maybe I just haven't found it? DAVilla 09:36, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
The French and German equivalents are at Appendix:French phonetic alphabet and Appendix:German phonetic alphabet. —Stephen 03:44, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
Due to variations there are more entries than that. DAVilla 09:36, 21 November 2006 (UTC)
