Symbol $

The spelling label is used when the subject spells a name letter by letter, e.g. for referring to the orthography or in abbreviations like USA. Each single letter is preceded by a $-label. The letters are always uppercase and separated by a comma or a dash, the latter mostly in abbreviations.
