'''Morse Code''' was invented by [[Samuel Morse]] in the 1840s. It is a collection of dashes and dots which are in fact a [[language]] with its own way of expressing [[word]]s and [[punctuation mark|punctuation]]. Morse code was used as an international standard for maritime communication until 1999 when it was retired in favour of different communication technologies.
The most famous Morse Code sequence is "SOS" (dot-dot-dot, dash-dash-dash, dot-dot-tod). Officially adopted as a distress call in 1908, it replaced the older "CQD" because of its ease of use and recognition. [http://www.boatsafe.com/nauticalknowhow/060199tip6.htm]
