Emoji and Annotation data

I tested emoji.json but unfortunately it's less useful than emoji-list.html.
1. "name" element is too long for the dictionary, E.g. "grinning face with smiling eyes" but I need both single word and words, E.g. "tower" and 
"united states".
2. Some keywords are adjective but I need noun. E.g. "smile" but not "smiley", "kiss" but not "kissing".

Now I will try to get the annotation list from unicode.org.
