emojiOrdering

Dataset and analysis I used for an initial study of emoji ordering. I had two main questoins:

  • Does an emoji description of a scene show the way that things are positioned in that scene?
  • Does the order of emojis tend to be the same as the ordering of those same concepts in an equivalent sentence?

For full details on this study, including data collectoin, please refer to my blog post: https://makingnoiseandhearingthings.com/2016/12/07/do-emojis-have-their-own-syntax/

Guide to columns in dataset. Those marked with "(from form)" were input by participants, all others are my own annotation of the data. Please feel free to fork, re-annotate and re-analyze the data.

  • Timestamp (from form) - time of survey completion
  • ManCameraGirlEmoji - text showing the order of the emoji from the ManCameraGirlEmoji column (for ease of analysis & for forward compatibility if emoji encoding changes)
  • EmojiChar (from form) - response in emoji for picture with the beach photoshoot
  • CastleManEmoji - text showing the order of the emoji from the CastleManEmoji column
  • EmojiChar2 (from form) - response in emoji for picture with the castle
  • ManMoneyEmoji - text showing the order of the emoji from the ManMoneyEmoji column
  • EmojiChar3 (from form) - response in emoji for picture with the man counting money
  • Sentence (from form) - sentence entered by participants describing the picture with the beach photoshoot
  • ManCameraGirlWords - my annotation of the order in which the concepts represented by the man, camera and woman emoji occurred in the sentence
  • Sentence2 (from form) - sentence entered by participants describing the picture with the castle
  • CastleManWords - my annotation of the order in which the concepts represented by the man and European castle emoji occurred in the sentence
  • Sentence3 (from form) - sentence entered by participants describing the picture with the man counting money
  • ManMoneyWords - my annotation of the order in which the concepts represented by the man and American dollar emoji occurred in the sentence
