Undeniably, language is the main element of a culture. The linguistic limitations of the verbal or the body languages represent the key factors that protect a culture from being easily assimilated. On the contrary, the facial expressions - of happiness, sadness, loneliness, love, fear or surprise - are identically represented and universally understood, since they reflect the effects of emotions on our facial muscles. The symbols of emotions (a portmanteau word formed by combining ‘emotion’ with ‘icon’) were already widely used in the 19th century, appearing as simple pictorial symbols. When online communication came into the play in the late 20th century, people began using their keyboards to communicate the symbols of emotions, and emoticon was born and proliferated. They tempt us to use them with their many facial expressions, including the ‘no emotion’ emoticon.
