Looks like it's in a file we haven't imported:
common/annotations/en.xml from the CLDR repo.  It has entries like

                <annotation cp="🥝">food | fruit | kiwi</annotation>
                <annotation cp="🥝" type="tts">kiwi fruit</annotation>
                <annotation cp="🍅">fruit | tomato | vegetable</annotation>
                <annotation cp="🍅" type="tts">tomato</annotation>
                <annotation cp="🫒">food | olive</annotation>
                <annotation cp="🫒" type="tts">olive</annotation>

which seems promising, if somewhat confusing.  I mean, one of these
three things isn't like the other: "food | fruit | kiwi".  So I guess it
can't be used to create an automatic segmentation, but after creating
some categories manually, it can be used to look up stuff when
populating the UI.  Probably.
