EMOJI (Japanese : 絵文字(えもじ), pronounced ; English: /ᵻˈmoʊdʒi/ , also US : /iːˈmoʊdʒi/ ; singular emoji, plural emoji or emojis) are ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and Web pages . Emoji
Emoji
are used much like emoticons and exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals.

Originating on Japanese mobile phones in the late 1990s, emoji have become increasingly popular worldwide since their international inclusion in Apple 's iPhone , which was followed by similar adoption by Android and other mobile operating systems. Apple's macOS operating system supports emoji as of version 10.7 (Lion ). Microsoft added monochrome Unicode
Unicode
emoji coverage to the Segoe UI Symbol system font in Windows 8
Windows 8
and added color emoji in Windows 8.1 via the Segoe UI Emoji
Emoji
font. The first international Emojicon conference was held in San Francisco, California on November 4, 2016.

Originally meaning pictograph , the word emoji comes from Japanese e (絵, "picture") + moji (文字, "character"). The resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental.

HISTORY

The development of emoji was predated by text-based emoticons , as well as graphical representations, inside and outside of Japan.

Emoji
Emoji
were initially used by Japanese mobile operators, NTT DoCoMo , au , and SoftBank Mobile (formerly Vodafone
Vodafone
). These companies each defined their own variants of emoji using proprietary standards. The first emoji was created in 1999 in Japan
Japan
by Shigetaka Kurita. He was part of the team working on NTT DoCoMo 's i-mode mobile Internet platform. Kurita took inspiration from weather forecasts that used symbols to show weather, Chinese characters
Chinese characters
and street signs, and from manga that used stock symbols to express emotions, such as lightbulbs signifying inspiration. The first set of 176 12×12 pixel emoji was created as part of i-mode's messaging features to help facilitate electronic communication, and to serve as a distinguishing feature from other services. Kurita created the first 180 emoji based on the expressions that he observed people making and other things in the city.

For NTT DoCoMo's i-mode, each emoji is drawn on a 12×12 pixel grid. When transmitted, emoji symbols are specified as a two-byte sequence, in the private-use range E63E through E757 in the Unicode
Unicode
character space, or F89F through F9FC for Shift JIS . The basic specification has 1706 symbols, with 76 more added in phones that support C-HTML 4.0.

Emoji
pictograms by Japanese mobile phone brand au are specified using the IMG tag . SoftBank Mobile emoji are wrapped between SI/SO escape sequences , and support colors and animation. DoCoMo's emoji are the most compact to transmit while au's version is more flexible and based on open standards.

From 2010 onwards, some emoji character sets have been incorporated into Unicode
Unicode
, a standard system for indexing characters, which has allowed them to be used outside Japan
Japan
and to be standardized across different operating systems.

Hundreds of emoji characters were encoded in the Unicode
Unicode
Standard in version 6.0 released in October 2010 (and in the related international standard ISO/IEC 10646 ). The additions, originally requested by Google
Google
(Kat Momoi, Mark Davis , and Markus Scherer wrote the first draft for consideration by the Unicode
Unicode
Technical Committee in August 2007) and Apple Inc.
Apple Inc.
(whose Yasuo Kida and Peter Edberg joined the first official UTC proposal for 607 characters as coauthors in January 2009), went through a long series of commenting by members of the Unicode
Unicode
Consortium and national standardization bodies of various countries participating in ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2, especially the United States, Germany, Ireland (led by Michael Everson ), and Japan; various new characters (especially symbols for maps and European signs) were added during the consensus-building process. Encoding in the Unicode standard has allowed emoji to become popular outside Japan. The core emoji set in Unicode
Unicode
6.0 consisted of 722 characters, of which 114 characters map to sequences of one or more characters in the pre-6.0 Unicode
Unicode
standard, and the remaining 608 characters map to sequences of one or more characters introduced in Unicode
Unicode
6.0. There is no block specifically set aside for emoji – the new symbols were encoded in seven different blocks (some newly created), and there exists a Unicode
Unicode
data file called EmojiSources.txt that includes mappings to and from the Japanese vendors' legacy character sets. "Regional Indicator Symbols " were defined as part of this set of characters as an alternative to encoding separate characters for national flags.

The popularity of emoji has caused pressure from vendors and international markets to add additional designs into the Unicode standard to meet the demands of different cultures. Unicode
Unicode
7.0 added approximately 250 emoji, many from the Webdings and Wingdings
Wingdings
fonts. Some characters now defined as emoji are inherited from a variety of pre- Unicode
Unicode
messenger systems not only used in Japan, including Yahoo and MSN Messenger
MSN Messenger
. Unicode
Unicode
8.0 added another 41 emoji, including articles of sports equipment such as the cricket bat, food items such as the taco , signs of the Zodiac
Zodiac
, new facial expressions, and symbols for places of worship.

Emoji
Emoji
characters vary slightly between platforms within the limits in meaning defined by the Unicode
Unicode
specification, as companies have tried to provide artistic presentations of ideas and objects. For example, following an Apple tradition, the calendar emoji on Apple products always shows July 17, the date in 2002 Apple announced its iCal calendar application for Mac. This led some Apple product users to initially nickname July 17 "International Emoji
Emoji
Calendar Day", which is now more commonly referred to as World Emoji Day . Other emoji fonts show different dates or do not show a specific one.

Some Apple emoji are very similar to the SoftBank standard, since SoftBank was the first Japanese network the iPhone launched on. For example, 💃
💃
(defined by Unicode
Unicode
as "dancer – also used for 'let's party'") is female on Apple and SoftBank standards but male or gender-neutral on others.

Journalists have noted that the ambiguity of emoji has allowed them to take on culture-specific meanings not present in the original glyphs. For example, 💅
💅
(nail polish) has been described as being used in English-language communities to signify "non-caring fabulousness" and "anything from shutting haters down to a sense of accomplishment". Unicode
Unicode
manuals sometimes provide notes on auxiliary meanings of an object to guide designers on how emoji may be used, for example noting that some users may expect 💺 (seat) to stand for "a reserved or ticketed seat, as for an airplane, train, or theater".

CULTURAL INFLUENCE

Twitter
and Firefox OS

Oxford Dictionaries named 😂 (Face With Tears of Joy) its 2015 Word of the year . Oxford noted that 2015 has seen a sizable increase in the use of the word "emoji" and recognized its impact on popular culture; On Oxford's choice to make 😂 the word of the year, Oxford Dictionaries president, Caspar Grathwohl expressed that "traditional alphabet scripts have been struggling to meet the rapid-fire, visually focused demands of 21st Century communication. It's not surprising that a pictographic script like emoji has stepped in to fill those gaps—it's flexible, immediate, and infuses tone beautifully." SwiftKey found that "Face with Tears of Joy" was the most popular emoji across the world. The American Dialect Society declared 🍆 (eggplant) to be the "Most Notable Emoji" of 2015 in their Word of the Year vote.

Some emoji are specific to Japanese culture, such as a bowing businessman (🙇), a face wearing a face mask (😷), a white flower (💮) used to denote "brilliant homework", or a group of emoji representing popular foods: ramen noodles (🍜), dango (🍡), onigiri (🍙), Japanese curry (🍛), and sushi (🍣). Unicode Consortium founder Mark Davis compared the use of emoji to a developing language, particularly mentioning the American use of 🍆 (eggplant) to represent a phallus . Some linguists have classified emoji and emoticons as discourse markers.

In December 2015 a sentiment analysis of emoji was published, and the Emoji
Emoji
Sentiment Ranking 1.0 was provided. In 2015, it was announced that Sony Pictures Animation was planning on making a feature animated film based on emoji, which was released in summer 2017. In 2016, a musical about emoji premiered in Los Angeles.

In January 2017, in what is believed to be the first large-scale study of emoji usage, researchers at the University of Michigan analysed over 427 million messages input via the Kika Emoji
Emoji
Keyboard and announced that the Face With Tears of Joy was the most popular emoji. The Heart and the Heart eyes emoji stood second and third respectively. The study also found that the French used the emoji associated with love the most. People in countries with high levels of individualism, like Australia, France and the Czech Republic, used more happy emoji, while this was not so for people in Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Argentina, where people used more negative emoji in comparison to cultural hubs known for restraint and self-discipline, like Turkey, France and Russia.

Emoji
Emoji
are now considered by many to form their own "language". There has also been discussion among legal experts on whether or not emoji such as the gun and face could be admissible in court. Furthermore, as emoji continue to develop and grow as a "language" of symbols, there may also be the potential of the formation of emoji "dialects". This is further backed up by the changing use of emoji. Emoji
Emoji
are being used as more than just to show reactions and emotions. Snapchat have even incorporated emoji in their trophy and friends system with each emoji showing a complex meaning.

EMOJI COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS

Research has shown that emoji are often misunderstood. In some cases, this is related to how the actual emoji design is interpreted by the viewer, in other cases the emoji that was sent, was not shown in the same way at the receiving side.

The difference between these two problems is, that the first relates to the cultural or contextual interpretation of the smiley. When the author picks a smiley, the author thinks about the smiley in a certain way, but the same smiley may not trigger the same thoughts with the receiver. See also Models of communication .

The second problem is technological. When an author of a message picks a smiley from a list of smiley faces, this smiley is encoded in some way during the transmission, and if the author and the reader do not use the same software or operating system for their devices, the reader's device may visualize the same smiley in a different way. Small changes to a smiley's look may completely alter its perceived meaning with the receiver.

The third problem is structural. Emoji
Emoji
has no sentence structure yet, such as grammar. Thus when used in communication, the same emoji sentence can be interpreted differently between different people. Emojigraphy is a form of structural grammar in Emoji
Emoji
as a Language. Although the implementation of grammar is still in infancy stage, its the first step to make Emoji
Emoji
Language a more reliable way of communication.

EMOJI VERSUS TEXT PRESENTATION

Unicode
Unicode
defines variation sequences for many of its emoji to indicate their desired presentation.

Emoji
Emoji
characters can have two main kinds of presentation:

* an emoji presentation, with colorful and perhaps whimsical shapes, even animated * a text presentation, such as black font-size:large;">■), blue (■), or gray (■). Non-human emoji (like U+26FD FUEL PUMP) are unaffected by the Fitzpatrick modifiers. As of Unicode
Unicode
10.0, Fitzpatrick modifiers can be used with 102 human emoji spread across six blocks: Dingbats , Emoticons , Miscellaneous Symbols , Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs , Supplemental Symbols and Pictographs , and Transport and Map Symbols .

Sample use of Fitzpatrick modifiers Code point default FITZ-1-2 FITZ-3 FITZ-4 FITZ-5 FITZ-6

U+1F466: BOY 👦 👦🏻 👦🏼 👦🏽 👦🏾 👦🏿

U+1F467: GIRL 👧 👧🏻 👧🏼 👧🏽 👧🏾 👧🏿

U+1F468: MAN 👨 👨🏻 👨🏼 👨🏽 👨🏾 👨🏿

U+1F469: WOMAN 👩 👩🏻 👩🏼 👩🏽 👩🏾 👩🏿

JOINING

Implementations may use U+200D ZERO WIDTH JOINER (ZWJ) between emoji to make them behave like a single, unique emoji character. (Systems that don't support this should ignore the ZWJ character.)

For example, the sequence U+1F468 MAN, U+200D ZWJ, U+1F469 WOMAN, U+200D ZWJ, U+1F467 GIRL (👨‍👩‍👧) could be displayed as a single emoji depicting a family with a man, a woman, and a girl if the implementation supports it. Systems that don't support it would ignore the ZWJs, showing the base emoji in the sequence: U+1F468 MAN, U+1F469 WOMAN, U+1F467 GIRL (👨👩👧).

Unicode
Unicode
maintains a catalog of emoji ZWJ sequences that are supported on at least one commonly available platform.

UNICODE BLOCKS

Unicode
Unicode
10.0 represents emoji using 1,182 characters spread across 22 blocks, of which 1,085 are single emoji characters, 26 are Regional Indicator Symbols that combine in pairs to form flag emoji, and 12 (#, * and 0-9) are base characters for keycap emoji sequences:

637 of the 768 code points in the Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs block are considered emoji. 134 of the 148 code points in the Supplemental Symbols and Pictographs block are considered emoji. All of the 80 code points in the Emoticons block are considered emoji. 94 of the 107 code points in the Transport and Map Symbols block are considered emoji. 80 of the 256 code points in the Miscellaneous Symbols block are considered emoji. 33 of the 192 code points in the Dingbats block are considered emoji.

IMPLEMENTATION

The exact appearance of emoji is not prescribed but varies between fonts, in the same way that normal typefaces can display letters differently. For example, the Apple Color Emoji typeface is proprietary to Apple, and can only be used on Apple devices (without additional hacking ). Different computing companies have developed their own fonts to display emoji, some of which have been open-sourced to permit their reuse. Both colour and monochrome emoji typefaces exist, as well as at least one animated design.

ANDROID

Android devices support emoji differently depending on the operating system version. Google

MACOS AND IOS

Apple first introduced emoji to their desktop operating system with the release of OS X
OS X
10.7 Lion , in 2011. Users can view emoji characters sent through email and messaging applications, which are commonly shared by mobile users, as well as any other application. Users can create emoji symbols using the "Characters" special input panel from almost any macOS application by selecting the "Edit" menu and pulling down to " Special
Special
Characters", or by the key combination ⌘ Command+⌥ Option+T. macOS uses the Apple Color Emoji font that was introduced in iOS . This provides users with full color pictographs.

The emoji keyboard was first available in Japan
Japan
with the release of iOS version 2.2. The emoji keyboard was not made available outside of Japan
Japan
until iOS version 5.0. Between iOS version 2.2 and 5.0, those outside Japan
Japan
could access the keyboard but had to use a third party app by Josh Gare . The app developed by Gare has been attributed with emoji being embraced by popular culture. iOS was updated to support Fitzpatrick modifiers with version 8.3.

OS X
OS X
10.9 Mavericks introduced a dedicated emoji input palette in most text input boxes using the key combination ⌘ Command+Ctrl+Space.

GENERAL

Any operating system that supports adding additional fonts (this would include most operating systems except Chrome and Android ) can add an emoji-supporting font. EmojiOne version 2.3, an open-source font available under free license, supports the full emoji set in color through version 9.0. The public domain font Symbola, last updated in July 2016, contains all emoji (in monochrome) through version 8.0 and some through version 9.0. Note however that not all operating systems have support for color fonts, so emoji might have to be rendered as black-and-white line art. Other typefaces including a significant number of emoji characters include Noto Emoji
Emoji
, and Quivira .
