Ask-A-Linguist Message Details
I'm trying to track down a system of picture-writing, I think invented by
a Canadian in the 20th c, and I think intended for the use of deaf-
mutes, which is independent of any particular spoken language and
attempts to provide a way of saying anything one might want to purely
via unpronounced written symbols. Unfortunately I cannot remember
the name (otherwise Google would take me straight to it). Can any
panelist help, please?
You may be thinking of Blissymoblics, a system developed by Charles Bliss and used with the deaf and other groups with language disabilities. I don't know if it's in current use, but I know it was big in the 70s and 80s. Amazon has several things on it.
