Ideogram

An ideogram or ideograph (from Greek ἰδέα idéa and γράφω gráphō ) is a graphic symbol that represents an idea or concept, independent of any particular language, and specific words or phrases. Some ideograms are comprehensible only by familiarity with prior convention; others convey their meaning through pictorial resemblance to a physical object, and thus may also be referred to as pictograms.

‘idea’; ‘to write’;
