Abstract

How can we explain the enormous amount of creativity and flexibility in spatial language use?
In this paper we detail computational experiments that try to capture the essence of this puzzle.
We hypothesize that flexible semantics which allow agents to conceptualize reality in many different
ways are key to this issue. We will introduce our particular semantic modeling approach
as well as the coupling of conceptual structures to the language system. We will justify the
approach and show how these systems play together in the evolution of spatial language using
humanoid robots.
