Formality icons
Formality icons
Two icons are used to express levels of formality, ☺ and ▲, which indicate informal or friendly and formal or polite respectively. Sometimes these icons are doubled-up to express plurals. For example, "you(☺☺)" is the English equivalent of the German pronoun "ihr" which is used to address more than one friend. And "you(▲,▲▲)" is the English equivalent of the German pronoun "Sie", which is a formal address to one or many people, such as police officiers.
