The Emoji Code: The Linguistics Behind Smiley Faces and Scaredy Cats

 

Drawing from disciplines as diverse as linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, and neuroscience, The Emoji Code explores how emojis are expanding communication and not ending it.

Evans argues that these symbols enrich our ability to communicate and allow us to express our emotions and induce empathy―ultimately making us all better communicators.
