Abstract

Pictogram Communication can create an environment where children can develop "bonds" regardless of their differences in language, culture, and physical locations. This paper reveals the communication patterns as extracted from an extensive collection of pictogram messages. More than thirteen hundred messages are assigned to three communication patterns: syntactic description, artistic drawing, and story telling. We examined three patterns of messages by to whom messages were sent. In addition, we observed the development process of such patterns, strategies children seem to apply. Finally, we discuss the influence of cultures on patterns. We found that different mother tongues influence on how children construct messages, while some children reason the cultural differences to create robust messages for intercultural communication.
