Modeling the Semantic Coordination of Speech and Gesture under Cognitive and Linguistic Constraints [chapter]

Kirsten Bergmann, Sebastian Kahl, Stefan Kopp
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a flexible cognitive model in which both linguistic as well as cognitive constraints are considered in order to simulate natural semantic coordination across speech and gesture.  ...  This paper addresses the semantic coordination of speech and gesture, a major prerequisite when endowing virtual agents with convincing multimodal behavior.  ...  What we present in this paper is a flexible cognitive model that simulates natural semantic coordination of speech and iconic gesture, accounting for information distribution and packaging under dynamically  ...

Production and Interaction between Gesture and Speech: A Review

Ying Gao, Yuqin Liu, Chunyue Zhou
2016 International Journal of English Linguistics

LANGUAGE IN MOTION: A FRAMEWORK FOR UNIFYING SPOKEN LANGUAGE, SIGNED LANGUAGE, AND GESTURE

2012 Anuari de Filologia. Estudis de Lingüística  
The foundational claim of the language in motion framework is that language and gesture are manifestations of a general human expressive ability which is grounded in embodied cognition and the need for  ...  Called the language as motion framework, it relies on three broad theories: cognitive grammar, dynamic systems, and cognitive neuroscience.  ...  The same dynamic models that account for the emergence of coordinative structures in skilled movement, such as fluent fingerspelling, speech, sign, or gesture, are recruited to explain cognition.  ...

Linguistic embodiment and verbal constraints: human cognition and the scales of time

Stephen J. Cowley
2014 Frontiers in Psychology  
Using radical embodied cognitive science, the paper offers the hypothesis that language is symbiotic: its agent-environment dynamics arise as linguistic embodiment is managed under verbal constraints.  ...  The latter arise in making and tracking phonetic gestures that, crucially, mesh use of artifice, cultural products and impersonal experience.  ...  Human dialogicality neither reduces to conventional use of form/meaning nor to typologies of speech act. No "pure" linguistic or cognitive model can show how mother and daughter coordinate.  ...
