Satan's Bunny Slippers: walktoanarcade:Sometimes when I see a new and confusing word I modify it to my liking and then mispronounce it my own way forever. Your misreading made me misread it as "Emojoi" which seems appropriate because I imagine mostly emos texting each other when I think of texting and emoticons, and those types would spell "joy" "joi" so I dub them: "Emojois"*deferential tip towards the elder farker*That makes perfect sense! Thanks to you, I will now think/read "emojoi". :)*slides you an internet drink of your choice*
Fast Moon: Is "emoji" some new term that's gaining traction? I hadn't really seen it before but this is the second time today in two different stories I've seen the word come up. It looks like a portmanteau of "emo" and the Japanese word "moji" (文字), for "character/letter", so does "emoji" only refer to the Japanese-style Unicode drawings like the one in the headline, or is it meant to replace all instances of the words "emote" or "emoticon"?
