这些常见的表情符号你都用对了吗？The most commonly misunderstood symbols revealed
The emoji: A frying pan with an egg
You think it means: Quite literally frying an egg
Apparently this symbol is not meant to represent simply making a fried egg and is supposed to represent the more general act of cooking.
The emoji: A star at the end of a crescent of light
You think it means: A shooting star
This emoji is definitely not one for keen astronomers.
It's supposed to represent feeling dizzy 'after a person falls or is otherwise lacking orientation'.
The emoji: A round face with steaming blowing from the nostrils
You think it means: Angry
Think about the grumpiest person you know and the chances are they will bear a close resemblance to this face - minus the clouds of steam.
However, it's not mean to represent anger. It's meant to look 'proud and disdainful' in an 'I'm right and you're wrong' kind of way.
The emoji: A face with what looks like a tear on one side
You think it means: Sad or upset
This face has sweat dripping from its brow, due to a stressful situation, rather than a tear falling from its eye.
The 'Sad but Relieved Face' is easily confused with the crying emoji as the bead of sweat on the cheek is difficult to discern from the tear when it's such a small size.
The emoji: Two hands side by side with the palms facing outwards
You think it means: 'Whatever'
If you ever use this emoji to demonstrate a devil-may-care attitude, then you're getting it wrong.
It's actually supposed to represent openness or even a hug.
SASSY WOMAN 活泼的女性
The emoji: A cheerful looking woman raising one outstretched palm
You think it means: A proud woman who isn't afraid to show her worth
The Woman Tipping Hand emoji actually belongs to the 'information desk person' set of emojis.
Rather than a sassy attitude, she's demonstrating that she's here to help.
The emoji: A man leaning on his forearms as if he's doing push ups
You think it means: Someone exercising or resting their head on their hands in a winsome fashion
There are no push ups involved in this emoji, which shows a person performing what's known as dogeza in Japan.
The deep bow is used to express a sincere apology, or to request a large favour.
The emoji: Four banana shapes arranged in a square formation
You think it means: It's probably one you've never used as you don't have a clue
You might not be familiar with this symbol if you've never read a Manga comic, where it represents veins popping in someone who is very angry.
It's also used in other comic books to show that a punch has been landed.
