Sims language

I've been thinking about how the Sims communicate -- to each other and to the player. Not just the verbal things, but also the symbols that occur in speech bubbles and especially in thought bubbles. Has anybody examined this is a more formal way? Sims fans have talked about it at length, trying to nail down more precise meanings and nuances for things. But it seems to me there's some primitive grammar going on -- it's not all just signs.
