Is "Yawned words in morse code" idiomatic? I am not sure if it's idiomatic, but I don't think I've ever seen a phrase like that in my life. I know that "blink in morse code" is idiomatic, but I am wondering if you can replace "blink" with a verb and an object like "spit saliva", "threw rocks" or "banged the door".

For example:

She banged the door in morse code to signal there was a danger.

    Practically, you could yawn or spit in Morse code (capitalize proper nouns), but for throwing rocks or banging on a door, the tap code would be better - one can't differentiate "dot" or "dash" in those. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tap_code – DrMoishe Pippik Jun 25 at 23:23
