Word-based science was a science that used words, instead of the usual numbers, as was more common in most species. It was employed by the Carrionites by 1599. It closely resembled witchcraft, and was probably the inspiration for certain motifs of the legend. It was of a complex nature, seemingly requiring certain words, certain rhythm, and a certain environment. (TV: The Shakespeare Code)
