DVS (Devious) Words

Some words and phrases can be written using just spelled-out letter sounds.

I am calling DVS (devious) those words that can be expressed as a sequence of letters and digits, each pronounced separately. I have arranged them here by length, shortest first, and within length in alphabetical order. Some of them may not be actual words, but they sound close enough for me :-)

Officially, they seem to be called Grammagrams.

Perhaps you got to this page by using a search engine and keying in a few of your favorite grammagrams, and hoping to find more. If you happen to have other grammagrams that are not on my list, please consider emailing me with details. I would love to list those that meet my approval, along with a mention of the source.
