[RNLD] Names for letters of the alphabet

Hello all


We are working on developing names for the sounds of Gamilaraay language,
i.e. a sort of alphabet with the equivalent of 'ay', 'bee', 'see',
'(h)aitch', etc.,  but also including names for phonemes written as aa, ng,
nh, etc.


I am basing the approach on one developed for the Maori language in NZ, and
I wonder if anyone has developed something similar for any other languages?
And any teaching songs (or other materials) to go with it? Any lessons
learned would be very welcome!
