Abstract

The article deals with the technology of structuring and visualizing fictional and real life empirical concepts with the help of emoji symbols in open source digital text mining platforms that not only activates students’ thinking, but also develops creative attention, makes it possible to reproduce the meaning of poetry in a succinct way, develops comprehensive digital literacy. The application of this technology has yielded the significance of introducing emoji in the study and mastering of literature is absolutely logical: an emoji, phenomenologically, logically and eidologically installed in the digital continuum, is separated from the natural language provided by (ethno)logy, and is implicitly embedded into (cosmo)logy. The technology application object is the text of the twentieth century Cuban poet José Ángel Buesa. The choice of poetry was dictated by the appeal to the most important function of emoji – the expression of feelings, emotions, and mood. It has been discovered that sensuality can reconstructed with the help of this type of meta-linguistic digital continuum. It is noted that during the emoji design in the Emoji Maker program, due to the technical limitations of the platform, it is possible to phenomenologize one’s own essential-empirical reconstruction of the lyrical image. Creating the image of the lyrical protagonist sign, it was sensible to apply knowledge in linguistics, philosophy of language, psychology, psycholinguistics, literary criticism. By constructing the sign, a special emphasis was placed on the facial emogram, which also plays an essential role in the transmission of a wide range of emotions, moods, feelings of the lyrical protagonist. Consequently, the Emoji Maker digital platform allowed to create a new model of digital presentation of fiction, especially considering the psychophysiological characteristics of the lyrical protagonist. Thus, the interpreting reader, using a specific digital toolkit – a visual iconic sign (smile) – reproduces the polylaterial metalinguistic multimodality of the sign meaning in fiction. The effectiveness of this approach is verified by the poly-functional emoji ousia, tested on texts of fiction. The experiment with the construction of signs and concepts in the Emoji Maker platform was supplemented by another experiment involving students in its visualization. The location specificity of the experimenters and respondents of the experiment is taken as the basis for generating a sign – the image of Borys Grinchenko as a patron of the Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University. Consequently, an individual approach to the visualization of corpus data was tested using the web application Voyant Tools, which works as an open source, providing text mining data. It is proved that with the support of reading and interpreting texts or corpus, digital analysis of the text becomes a significant linguistic addition to the generated sign. And the visual complement can be based both on a specific text (poetry by José \'{A}ngel Buesa) and on keywords / concepts (the image of Borys Grinchenko in the context of a specified location – at Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University).
