DescriptionInterjectional Exercises is the title of a page of Alexander Graham Bell's "Visible Speech", from 1867. It was an attempt to produce a way of writing the sounds of speech systematically, to help the illiterate to read, and the Deaf to speak -- a failed enterprise for reasons that it took linguists a long time to understand.
It's also the title of a performance by the artist Rowland Hill, which includes material in BSL. I sponsored the restoration of the Portico Library's copy of the book, which touches on two topics at the centre of my research.
