instead of words. A symbolic language made by gestures. Members
of religious orders bound to silence, communicate with each other in
this way. John, a monk, gives, in his Life of St. Odo, a number
of signs for bread, tart, beans, eggs, fish, cheese, honey, milk,
cherries, onions, etc. (See Sussex Archaeological Collection, vol. iii. p. 190.)
