Abstract: Can emojis replace words. or are they pretty decorations to our verbal communication? Latasha Barbara looks into the science behind our use of emojis. There is more to language than words. Facial expressions, intonation. and body language all have an effect on how one's message comes across - this is known as paralinguistic. These qualities are essential for communication, and our innate need for it doesn't disappear when using screens. But does our digital world adequately portray our gestures and true feelings behind a text message?
