Learning visually grounded words and syntax of natural spoken language

2002 Evolution of Communication  
As steps in this direction, two experimental language acquisition systems are presented.The first system, CELL, is able to learn acoustic word forms and associated shape and color categories from fluent  ...  This paper advocates the creation of physically grounded language learning machines as a path toward scalable systems which can conceptualize and communicate about the world in human-like ways.  ...  Acknowledgements This paper benefited from comments from Peter Gorniak, Luc Steels, Rupal Patel, and Kai-Yuh Hsiao.  ...

Constraints on the lexicons of human languages have cognitive roots present in baboons (Papio papio)

Emmanuel Chemla, Isabelle Dautriche, Brian Buccola, Joël Fagot
2019 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
The task was made as similar as possible to a task previously run on humans, which was argued to reveal a bias that is responsible for shaping the lexicons of human languages, both content words (nouns  ...  The current baboon result thus suggests that the cognitive roots responsible for regularities across the content and logical lexicons of human languages are present in a similar form in other species.  ...  to search for connected meanings first, and thereby biasing the lexicon of natural languages to preferentially contain words with connected meanings."  ...

Explaining Color Term Typology With an Evolutionary Model

Mike Dowman
2007 Cognitive Science  
The simulation therefore demonstrates how typological patterns can emerge as a result of learning biases acting over a period of time.  ...  An expression-induction model was used to simulate the evolution of basic color terms to test Berlin and Kay's (1969) hypothesis that the typological patterns observed in basic color term systems are produced  ...  An earlier version of this article was presented at the 25th Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society.  ...

2000 Journal of experimental psychology. General  
Rosch Heider's work was generally consistent with the proposal of Berlin and Kay (1969) that the emergence of color lexicons followed a predetermined evolutionary course.  ...  The authors sought to replicate and extend the work of E. Rosch Heider (1972) on the Dani with a comparable group from Papua, New Guinea, who speak Berinmo, which has 5 basic color terms.  ...  ---red, blue, brown, purple, pink, orange, yellow, and green.  ...

Statistical regularities in vocabulary guide language acquisition in connectionist models and 15-20-month-olds

Cultural Constraints on Grammar and Cognition in Pirahã

Daniel L. Everett
2005 Current Anthropology  
Therefore, although I begin with what will strike most anthropologists as a strange division between the form of communication (language) and the ways of meaning (culture) from which it emerges, my conclusion  ...  This study began as a description of the absence of numerals, number, and counting in Piraha ˜, the only sur-3.  ...  Pawley's understanding of Hockett pivots on the meaning of "same system." He thinks that it means "same language." I claim that it means "same-species communication system."  ...
