#### Transcript of Morse Code 2-digit letters

'E' and 'T' being the most common letters, they got the shortest codes, '.' and '-', respectively. On this diagram, a move to the left represents a '.' (dit) and a move to the right represents a '-' (dah).
Let's go to the start... Morse Code 2-digit letters Morse transforms letters and numerals in dits and dahs. Dits are short acoustic signals, transcribed as dots. Dits and dahs . Dahs are three times as long as dits.
They're transcribed as dashes. - The developers
of the Morse code were
quite clever. They gave the most common letters in English the shortest codes.

In this course, you'll learn about the letters
E, T, I, A, N
and M. A move from the start to the left
represents one dit, and takes us to the letter... A move from the start to the right
represents one dah and takes us to the letter... From here, we can once more
move to the left or to the right. We
have already moved to the right once to
get to the letter 'T' (-). Moving to the right again
takes us to the letter whose Morse code is '--'. So, the code for the
letter M is '--' (dash dash).
Let's look at the diagram again. The more often we take a left or right turn, the more complex the codes for the letters get. That's a lot of codes to remember! Let's take things one step at a time. This course focuses on those letters which need no more than two dits or dahs. Ready? Time to hear what they actually sound like in the next Memrise level!
