What’s an emoji?


 

By the way, about the title of this blog…

ところでこのブログのタイトル・・

I use “moji” from “emoji” that is a world famous and popular word.

「モジ」は世界的に有名にして人気の高い「エモジ」からです

You know “emoji” is something about “emotion” for us…

エモジって、僕たちにとってはエモーション(感情)のなにかだよね・・

そうだね

I… I didn’t know it…

し・・知らなかった・・

I thought everyone knew it is a Japanese word…

エモジは日本語だと誰でも知ってるって思ってた・・

emoji [emodzi] = e(絵picture) + moji(文字letter, character)     

エモジ=絵+文字

MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art, New York) had an exhibition of the original Emoji set.
