Dac`tyl*ol"o*gy

(?), n. [Gr. da`ktylos finger + -logy.] The art of communicating ideas by certain movements and positions of the fingers; -- a method of conversing practiced by the deaf and dumb.
[1913 Webster]

There are two different manual alphabets, the one-hand alphabet (which was perfected by Abb de l'Epe, 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.
[1913 Webster]
