Myself, I was told the traditional alphabet, a b c ch d e f g h i j k l ll m n =F1 o p q r s t u v w x y z and I've always said <be larga>, <ce hache>, <elie>, <ve corta>, <doble ve>, and <i griega>. Nowadays I just recite the English alphabet. I think the Real Academia suppresed some letters, though I'm not sure which. Dictionaries still have separate sections for C and CH, and for L and LL, AFAIK. I guess it can be frustrating for non-native speakers to desperately look for a word beginning 'ch' in the 'c' chapter. ;) --Pablo Flores
