I found the following web page yesterday.

http://grouplens.org/blog/investigating ... ing-emoji/

There is a pdf document linked from that page.

http://grouplens.org/site-content/uploa ... tation.pdf

That pdf document appears to be the substantial document about the research.

The research is very interesting in relation to fonts as it includes some research on miscommunication that can be caused by the emoji fonts on different devices having different designs of the glyph for the same character code.

So the person sending a message may see, for a particular emoji character, one design of glyph and the recipient see a different design of glyph; and in some cases the different designs are being interpreted as having a different intended meaning.

I notice that they mention the Oxford Dictionary in relation to emoji. I had not known about that.

There is a video on the above page as well.

I have just noticed the following document, Jurassic Emoji Proposal.

http://www.unicode.org/L2/L2016/16072-j ... -emoji.pdf

It is available from the following web page.

http://www.unicode.org/L2/L-curdoc.htm

An interesting quote from the document.

quote

On a figurative level, the brontosaurus may be used to indicate that someone is sweet, or that someone is particularly clueless.

end quote

That seems very ambiguous! :)

This looks fascinating. It is emoji-related, though not totally about emoji.

It is linked from the following web page.

There is feedback on two topics, namely the following.

Feedback on Jurassic Emoji proposal

Feedback on Coded Hashes of Arbitrary Images proposal
