Kaomoji Dictionary (Article)

Now, probably, it is impossible to find a person who would not know what emoticons are and would not use them. Even when we write letters by hand, we put on sad or funny emoticons to spice up our writing. An ordinary smiley, as it were, depicts a human face and this is a common image, however, Asia has its own emoticons, which have formed into a whole dictionary called Kaomoji (Japanese 顔 文字 - facial expression). For the most part, these emojis are inspired by anime and manga. Let's see how they look!
