The word PARIS is used to measure the speed of transmitting. The DIT is the standard unit and one DAH is equal to three DITS. The space between the DITS and DAHS within a letter is one DIT. The space between letters in a word is three DITS and the space between words is seven DITS.

 

One interesting thing is that the famous help signal “SOS” is in International code, not in Morse Code.
