The morse code alphabet

What is morse code?

Morse code, invented by Samuel Morse, takes the letters of the alphabet and replaces them with a combination of dashes and dots.

You can create these dashes and dots using long and short sounds, long and short light flashes, or just by writing them on paper. You can translate these back into normal letters using a guide like the one above. (Or, if you're really good at memorising stuff, you can learn the whole code!)
