    Default Word describing words

    I may be off in the brain but it is my understanding that there is a word for words that are only found in writing. Is this so? If so, what is the word for that??

    Do you mean in English? If so, I don't know of this, I'm afraid.

    Do you mean idiographs (e.g., hieroglyphics)?
