I'm looking for types of codes and languages that people use for various reasons to communicate spoken language into various forms.
Examples off the top of my head would be morse code
, semaphore flags
, smoke signals
, and sign language
. These aren't secret languages per se, but take a given spoken language, and translate them in a sort of code.
Are there others like this that exist?
