Emoji is originally a Japanese invention. In Japanese the kanji for ็ตตๆ–‡ๅญ— or in hiragana ใˆใ‚‚ใ˜. Emoji are ideograms, not unlike the singular kanjis that they replace. The most common examples are smiley faces that are used in text messages to convey an emotional expression. The differ from emoticons because they are actual pictures instead of bespoke typographics. The Japanese kanji ็ตตๆ–‡ๅญ— means pictograph. The word emoji comes from Japanese e (็ตต, “picture”) + moji (ๆ–‡ๅญ—, “character”); the resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental, but makes it pretty cool in translation.
