Emojiself pronouns are a form of gender neutral neopronouns. They are similar to nounself pronouns but are only used over the internet as they use emojis. They might be used for a number of reasons, such as one liking the way they look, liking the way they may sound in their head, or because one feels they describe them or reflect their gender well. Since emoji pronouns are meant to be text based they cannot be pronounced and they may not have word alternatives, so most emoji pronoun users have alternate pronouns to be used when talking in person. Some emoji pronoun users will use a nounself pronoun alternate based on the emoji, for example, if one's uses the pronoun "🍓" they may use an alternate like "stra/straself", "ber/berryself, or "berry/berryself", but another person who uses the pronoun "🍓" might use pronouns like he, she, or they in real life.
Most emojiself pronouns follow the same grammatical formula, with the only thing changed being the emoji itself so only one example will be given.
- Nominative: 🍓 (🍓 went to the store.)
- Accusative: 🍓 (I met 🍓 today.)
- Pronominal possessive: 🍓s (If 🍓 does not get a haircut, 🍓s hair grows long.)
- Predicative possessive: 🍓s (If I need a phone my friend will let me borrow 🍓s.)
- Reflexive: 🍓self (🍓 has to drive 🍓self to school.)
