Do you think that emojis are taking the place of written words? Read 14 year old Bookworm’s take on the topic. IKR?
Roughly two million years before, humans lived in caves, spoken language was being developed and communication was largely through symbols and pictures.
Roughly two million years later, humans live in apartments, spoken language is developed, but they still communicate largely through symbols and pictures!
Sometimes I wonder if I am destroying what our ancestors developed over so many years when I send an occasional smiley face to my friends. Language. The essence of being human. The only line of demarcation between us and other animals is our knowledge. Language holds quite an important position at it.
I am quite sure great authors such as Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Agatha Christie will be really disgusted, and upset about this whole yellow-colored-expressive-heads business. Today’s generation lacks the skill of weaving their emotions through words. We just get a thumbs-up emoji instead of real appreciation, laughing emojis instead of humor.
