Modeling Action Verb Semantics Using Motion Tracking
In this article, we consider how semantics of action verbs can be grounded on motion tracking data. We present the basic principles and requirements for grounding of verbs through case studies related to human movement. The data includes high-dimensional movement patterns and linguistic expressions that people have used to name these movements. We discuss open issues and possibilities related to symbol grounding. As a conclusion, we find the grounding to be useful when reasoning about the meaning of words and relationships between them within one language and potentially also between languages.
