    how did i miss this thread?

    i put this observation in another thread, but clearly it belongs here. i went to a seminar on punctuation in medieval and early modern texts, and it reminded me of the mc forum:

    sometimes punctuation is grammatical, but other times it guides a reader on how to interpret a text when reading it aloud/performing it. someone wished we had more choices of punctuation marks, and the speaker noted that emoticons beginning to serve that function.

    so i realized that MC emoticons have THREE functions:
    1) as punctuation to guide reader interpretation (if you go by the labels you see when you roll the mouse over the icon selection tray): yikes:eek:
    2) literally the name of the character depicted: my favorite frog is :)
    3) as some other facet of the muppet's personality: and i am cute, too :super:

    i still usually find emoticons annoying, but thinking of them as an evolution in vernacular punctuation might just make me ok with them.
