 dac·ty·lol·o·gy /ˌdæktəˈlɑləʤɪ/ 名詞

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Dac·tyl·ol·o·gy n.  The art of communicating ideas by certain movements and positions of the fingers; a form of sign language, especially the manual alphabets used by the deaf and dumb.
 Note:There are two different manual alphabets, the one-hand alphabet (which was perfected by Abbé de l'Epée, who died in 1789), and the two-hand alphabet. The latter was probably based on the manual alphabet published by George Dalgarus of Aberdeen, in 1680. See Illustration in Appendix.
