emoticon vs emoji
emoticon = a group of keyboard characters that are used to represent a facial expression (such as a smile or frown) e.g. : ) ; )
emoji = a small digital image or icon used to express an idea, emotion, etc. e.g.
Pronunciation of 'the' - https://learnersdictionary.com/qa/Two-Pronunciations-of-The
Pronunciation of 'a' - The different pronunciations are usually related to emphasising the word, for example, if you are using it to mean 'one'. We normally pronounce it as "uh" or /ə/, and if we stress it, pronounce it as "ay" or /eɪ/.
E.g. 'Here's your hamburgers!' 'I wanted a
("ay") hamburger, not multiple hamburgers!'
