Does Lojban include these, analogous to the English use of "alpha", "bravo",
"charlie", "david", etc? Naturally in Lojban, unique cmene would be needed.
If this topic has not yet been considered (I'm pretty ignorant about Lojban),
I think it is important that the cmene be easy to distinguish. The Esperanto
letter-names, a, bo, co, c^o, do, etc. are very similar to one another and
easy to confuse: spelling out a word in Esperanto does nothing to aid in its
comprehension. Spelling-out is important in English for people who are
hearing-impaired or in noisy environments, and should be equally important
