dc.description.abstract Choosing the right emoji to visually complement or con- dense the meaning of a message has become part of our daily life. Emojis are pictures, which are naturally combined with plain text, thus creating a new form of language. These pic- tures are the same independently of where we live, but they can be interpreted and used in diferent ways. In this pa- per we compare the meaning and the usage of emojis across diferent languages. Our results suggest that the overall se- mantics of the subset of the emojis we studied is preserved across all the languages we analysed. However, some emojis are interpreted in a diferent way from language to language, and this could be related to socio-geographical diferences.
