Is an encoded version of English - using a well-known code which encodes letters on a 1-1 basis.
In a foreign language, this would not be the case.

Re: Morse Code ! - apparently

@strat.... I beg to differ.... Morse is NOT a Forren language..... it is an "international code of symbols" , that can be read in most languages.
