Thoughtmark is an advanced form of sign language used for communication by the Sisters of Silence.[1]

Combining gestures and body language, sisters can use Thoughtmark to communicate anything from simple battle orders to intricate concepts pertaining to the nature of witchcraft. The speech can be rendered audible by technological systems that allow sign forms to be machine-readable at great speed , or even output them as vox signals if needed . Alternatively, they are translated by the Proloquors - acolytes of the order yet to take their vows.[1]

Some outsiders learn to translate or use Thoughtmark themselves, most notably the Adeptus Custodes. Thoughmark is a language that is much easier to translate than to wield, for its subtle and nuanced movements are difficult to master.[1]
