Abstract
This study focuses on finding a grammatical correlate for paralinguistic emojis in order to explore translation of emojis into written word. By diagramming sentence structure, sentence adverbs proved to be the closest grammatical correlate to paralinguistic emojis. A survey taken at Wheaton College, MA, indicated that paralinguistic emojis act over the sentence to change the overall sentiment. Through attempts to translate emojis as sentence adverbs, it became clear that English lacks proper breadth of sentiment in sentence adverbs and it is necessary to translate some emojis as adverbs of manner.
