    With a language as rich and diverse as English at our disposal, with it's ability to give us the exact words we need to express with subtlety and nuance our most complex thoughts and emotions, it's good to see that we can simply use a clipart image instead.

    Then again, perhaps I should have just said, :(

    World emoji day? Really? We need a day to recognize illiterate teenagers (and immature grown-ups) who use little pictures, because they can't compose grammatically correct, coherent sentences?

    Oh, why not?...

    :confused: :mad: :oops: :rolleyes: :cry: :lol:

    I'm sure you read over your response many times to make sure it was grammatically correct before hitting the Post Reply button. :D

    There isn't one to signify how I want to celebrate World Emoji Day. Those decals in the back window of certain pickups referencing other pickup brands comes close.

    From what I understand, English isn't all that precise. It is my native language so I'm very used to how precise I can be with it, but my friends and colleagues in French speaking places complain about the inherit ambiguity often found in English. Latin was a ridiculously precise language and we don't use as much Latin based words as other folks like our friends that speak French etc.

    Such a cool topic though, I wonder how weird it would be if we had to conjugate nouns like Latin...

    I don't particularly like emojis, despite my age, but I agree with you regarding :(

    C'mon, it is becoming the world common language and people now sit next to each other texting each other, so get with it.

    Based on the pedigree of this observance maybe we could get TDPRI to declare World Get Off My Lawn day and get the CEO of Fender to issue a special Telecaster in honor of it (they could just put a sticker on one of their models and get the CEO to tweet about it). You can't see that I'm smiling so I will include the following metadata hint. :)

    Maybe we just need TDPRI-related emojis:

    * Leo
    * cookin' tubes
    * cargo shorts
    * bacon
    * cowboy hat 'n' boots
    * elevator

    French evolved from Latin, English evolved from German. Hence, the significant linguistic difference between the two languages.

    English adopted a bunch of Latin vocabulary, and during the Enlightenment scholars tried to impose Latin grammar, but as a Germanic language, any attempt at forcing the rules of Latin onto English will be inherently artificial and doomed to fail.

    English can be incredibly precise. English speakers? Yeah, very often not so much.

    On the contrary, English can be exceptionally precise. It's no accident it became the language of science and research.
    English grew up out of old German, but had a lot of French grafted into it following the Norman conquest. What happened is a lot of things had both a French and a Germanic word, such as pork and swine, depending on your place in society. But more subtly, the meaning of each changed slightly. So for example between many of these parallel words, now in English we have the ability to ask and to request, and there's different shades of meaning assigned to each. Few languages offer this level of resolution when it comes to word choice, and it allows very specific meaning to be conveyed.
