communication is difficult.
Because people are different from each other, how to receive behavior is 20 people. Sometimes I do not expect at all and I get troubled and become a battle scene.
How can we do for a smooth communication?
This time is the story of me that is likely to be one of the answers.
1982 (Showa 57) On September 19, IBM's Scott Falman used the emoticons that are used today for the first time in the world.
"History" is a story of a very recent and short period, but it is hard to use mobile phones and smartphones at all, which is indispensable to life.
What kind of emoticons were born and developed? (^ O ^) / Hajimata
in terms of symbolizing emotion Morse code
It is quite difficult to express emotions in sentences.
Even if people are accustomed to writing novelists and passionate love letters, even if ordinary people say "write sentences that are emotional", they will be troubled "eh … …" .
If it is a conversation, you can feel the nuance with the tone of the voice, but what you can not help wondering how you can receive it if it is sentences.
I answered in the wrong way to the opposite meaning of the partner's true intention, and became a minor fight …… I guess there are many things.
As communication methods developed, inconvenience was born around that.
In 1857 the expression "Love & Kiss" was created with Morse code.
This is the last greeting that is also used in letters, so it is not new, but in terms of "symbolizing emotion" it can be said to be a distant ancestor of emoticons.
Among them, when typewriter is born, ; and ) etc. are expressed as parts of the face .
However, it did not spread too much.
The typewriter itself was a machine that required skill, and depending on the person 's sign, I can not see it as its facial expression ^ ^;
writer Vladimir Nabokov also felt inconvenience
For example, the emoticons used in 1912 are ___ /! .
It seems that I wanted to express "smiling mouth" with this, but even considering that "emoticons in the Western countries are lying down", it is hard to see that …
Also, in 1881, vertically written emoticons have been devised in a certain magazine in the United States.
However, it was not established, because the sentence was written horizontally. You may have been sick if you announce it in Japan.
Because of these various restrictions, emoticons do not develop easily.
There were many people who felt inconvenience, and writer Vladimir Nabokov wrote in an interview in 1969
"I wish there was a symbol for smile like a figure with ) turned downward"
I have answered it.
Perhaps this was Falman's hint, did not he?
After all, "smile 🙂 is good at first"
Mr. Falman thought that today is also commonly used in Western countries 🙂 and 🙁 : each "smile 🙂 "And" a bad face 🙁 ".]
Although Japanese emoticons differ in orientation in their first place, this is because they developed independently in Japan, not using what entered from the West.
Among the records, I know that "(^ _ ^)" was used for the first time in 1986.
In both cases, it is interesting that "Emoticons representing smiles were used for the first time". Under the root, was there a psychology like "I want to relax your opponent for a while because it seems to be stiff if it is only sentences?"
Starting with these, emoticons were made using a variety of letters and symbols in both the West and in the West.
For convenience, it seems that it is called "Western type" or "Japanese type".
"Western type" is like this.
: -) (Smile)
: – ( (grumpy face, anger)
: P (appearing tongue out)
It seems obvious at first sight from a Japanese, but turning 90 degrees to the left looks like a face properly.
On the other hand, the Japanese type is familiar to you, mainly like this.
(^ _^) (Smile)
(T_T) (crying face)
m (_ _) m (sorry)
Just as Japanese uses three kinds of kanji, katakana, and hiragana, it can be said that various characters are used. Sometimes double-byte characters and half-width characters are intermingled.
Even if it has only the same signs and letters as in Europe and the US area, it is felt that the face direction is totally different.
Emoticons was passed down to the LINE stamp?
In China and Taiwan, both Japanese type and Western type emoticons are used together, and unique emoticons are also used.
Sometimes it is possible to express a state of raising the middle finger only by "convex".
To be told, it certainly looks a bit like shape.
In the famous episode of the Old Testament "Tower of Babel", "Humans bought the wrath of God, broke the tower, made the language unbalanced, unable to unite."
It is unknown whether it is fact or fact that it is a thing of thousands of years ago, but emoticons may be "world-common expressions" before the time of the Tower of Babel.
As long as sentences are established to some extent with only emoticons, communication with foreign people will be easy all the time.
Among them, "People who want to express complicated things learn languages, greetings and easy conversations are enough for emoticons" and the times have come … or now I'm talking with LINE stamps It was a normal era.
