Steels, L. Constructivist Development of Grounded Construction Grammars. In Daelemans, W. and Walker, M., editor, Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, pages 9-19, 2004 Association for Computational Linguistic Conference

Sony CSL authors: Luc Steels


The paper reports on progress in building computational models of a constructivist approach to language development. It introduces a formalism for construction grammars and learning strategies based on invention, abduction, and induction. Examples are drawn from experiments exercising the model in situated language games played by embodied artificial agents.

Keywords: fluid construction grammars, semiotic dynamics, self-organisation of language
