Ed-W0SD said the following,

If I were to get on the soapbox about something in regards to call signs 
it would be that people need to give calls with phonetics.

I would like to take that a step further and say, USE STANDARD 
PHONETICS.  DX stations often have a limited knowledge of English but 
many have learned the standard phonetic alphabet.  

The best I ever heard was from a YL she gave her call as W- Rubies 
Diamonds and Pearls.  Not sure the DX station ever got her call correct.
