This is a collaborative wiki project to define an emerging phenomena, its theory and practical applications.
Definition: (This is a working definition: Please edit till we like it. If you are unsure whether an edit will improve the definition, let's discuss on the talk page)--Dgray xplane 03:38, 27 November 2006 (UTC) Visual language is any communication which is primarily visual. For the purposes of this wiki, it will focus on an emerging field which focuses on improving thinking, learning and communication by making it more visual.
Bob Horn's definition: "Visual language is a new language composed of tightly integrated textual and visual elements. Its emergence is a result of such driving forces as globalization, increasing complexity both in commerce and technology, and the convergence of vocabularies from many previously distinct fields."
