15.5 percent of Americans believe emoji could replace English and take us back to a hieroglyphic language, according to a new survey by the makers of the new party game Emoji Cards.

Emoji have taken over your text messages and tweets, but could they take over our language completely?

Spicy Doodles, the company behind the brand new party game Emoji Cards, surveyed 1,000 U.S. Internet users to see just how many people could see English vanishing for a hieroglyphic language based on emoji.

The survey revealed that 15.5 percent of Americans believe yes, emoji could replace English. 65 percent think English is here to stay.

As expected, the younger a person is, the more likely they are to see emoji taking over as the dominant language. 32.4 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds could see emoji replacing English versus 8.7 percent of 55- to 64-year-olds.

The survey also found 9 percent of Americans would break up with someone using emoji. So if you receive a text with a sad face, a broken heart, and a thumbs down — don’t say you weren’t warned.

Men are almost twice as likely as women to say they would dump someone using emoji.

The rapid, viral spread of emoji communication is one of the main reasons the team at Spicy Doodles created Emoji Cards. In the game, players use the cards featuring the emoji they love to get their teammates to guess pop culture clues. Emoji Cards is currently only available for preorder on Kickstarter for the next week, and has received support from both Mark Cuban and Nick Cannon.
