Thus the 5 of Hearts would be signalled by: TRY and tell me what this card is, WOULD you. The King of Clubs would be: I'd like you to tell me what this card is. The Queen of Spades: CAN you tell me the name of this card, Walford (or whatever the Medium's name is).
It will have been seen how great is the importance of sub-division in coding objects. To signal any country, the continent is first coded and the second sentence gives the actual country. To signal the Continent, the code below is used. The second sentence gives the country by coding its initial letter only. Since England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland are countries frequently named, they are the first on the list.
A list of the most common countries to be given in each continent is also given, together with their initials. Learn those which are most well known first.
