Languages are codified symbols for communication purposes.
Chemistry itself is a symbolic language with many chemicals possessing dynamic causal properties for interaction with other chemicals.

Two enantiomers of a generic amino acid that are chiral . Each "handedness has unique properties, but can only bond in accordance to its chirality
An assembly language!
Bacteria are bi-lingual and use different chemical words for intra-species and inter-species communication (quorum sensing).
And a host of other quasi-intelligent bio-organisms such as insects and many plants (trees) use chemical codes as words or chemical triggers for communication purposes.
A tree with caterpillar infestation will broadcast a chemical which triggers the production of Tannin in its neighbors' foliage in defense of an anticipated enemy. Tannin stumps the growth of caterpillars and reduces their survival rate.
The mayfly female produces a pheromone which will call males from as far away as 20 miles. Aromatic communication.
Honeybees perform their famous choreographed dance with information about location and abundance of a food source. Mathematical patterns repeated as a dance.
Slime molds leave a chemical marker to tell itself where it has been. Memory.
The more you look you'll find that almost all species with remarkable features use these feautures for survival and communication purposes.
The peacock is a beautiful example of presenting an aesthetic presence in order to be noticed and "impress" to observer. The world's lovers of all stripes perform the most delicate and intricate pas de deux.
Seems that even the simplest biological organisms have rudimentary modes of intra-species communication.

After reading that , I think I need a tin foil hat protection , it was complex . When I view chemistry it goes way above my head in understanding , I think chemistry is the hardest of the sciences and I only know bits about chemistry and the representing element code .
The reason I've asked about linguistic code etc is because of people like Tesla who thought things had significant meanings . IMO they were just making things up in their own minds , a bit like star signs , Libra , Capricorn etc or a saucepan shape which is just imagination .
So what other linguistic coding is there , you know the sort of stuff a spy would use , what is the enigma code?
Reported for thread hijacking.
Yep, i am sure it is.
I personally believe they gave english to the public, as phonetically is a very dumb downed language.
Words do have some resonance with you. Its why catholic church does confession, as saying things verbally, just saying it, helps.
So for me, its probably very possible to manipulate populations with linguistics and put code in them.
There is a reason why swear words, are swear words.
I would assume we all have our own understanding of what these words together mean, ie "linguistic code".
You should of defined what you think it means, op.
I'm not sure , I think I may of worded it badly. I was thinking about a film called Wind Talkers ,I think that's what it is called.
Then the thought occurred that any foreign language is like listening to code if you don't know that language.
Anyway that is how my question was devised .
Separate names with a comma.
