A pictogram is any symbol used for communication, i.e. to convey some specific meaning by resembling an object or idea.
Compared to the pictographics tag, symbols in this tag need not be spoken. Also, certain common symbols are excluded from this tag because they are comparatively overgrown and would drown out other examples.
^ If used creatively to express added meaning, any of the above exceptions may still apply.
Examples (not all inclusive)
- a symbol used for suggestive purposes, such as a bone symbol representing an erection or sex
- a symbol of an object used to represent activities associated with that object
