Happy, angry, amazed—these are some of the emotions we like to express these days when we're sending a message on our smart phones! That's why many of us now add little pictures to our texts to brighten up someone's mobile screen but we're also using them as a quick way of telling someone how we're feeling. Yes, emojis have become a vital tool for communication.

Let's clear one thing up first—there are emojis and emoticons. The latter arc liulc images made using normal keys on a keyboard. For example, a colon(冒号), two dots, followed by the curved line of a close brackets is a "smiley face". But as technology has become more sophisticated, pre-made images have been created that can be simply added to your messages, which is great!

The emoji was first invented in Japan in the late 1990s and the word "emoji" comes from ihc Japanese words for "picture" and "character". The number of different images Inis dramatically increased since then and now we have a picture for every mood or situation. So why we've become so addicted to using emojis? Professor Vyv Evans says. increasingly, what we're finding is that digital communication is taking over from certain
aspects of face-to-face interaction ... one of the reasons emojis are so interesting is that they really do enable us to express our emotional selves much more effectively."

Another advantage of emojis is that they are an international language—they don't use words but tell a message in pictorial form so they can be easily interpreted whatever your native language. However, the emojis you send need some thought as they can sometimes be misinterpreted—if a friend sends you an emoji of a hammer (锤子),you may think he is angry when really he is saying he has hurt himself or he is clumsy!

But as linguist Neil Cohn says, "To many, emojis are an exciting evolution of the way we communicate; to others, they are linguistic Armageddon." It does show there is a lot more to our communication than words alone but docs this mean the decline in traditional writing?
