Spatial prepositions and vague quantifiers: Implementing the functional geometric frameworkdoi.orgPDF
Proceedings of Spatial Cognition Conference 2004, 2005
There is much empirical evidence showing that factors other than the relative positions of objects in Euclidean space are important in the comprehension of a wide range of spatial prepositions in English and other languages. We first the overview the functional ...

The Logic of Cognitive Systems. Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Cognitive Modeling, pages 147-152, 2003
Abstract Embodied theories of cognition propose that symbol systems are analogue (eg Barsalou, 1999; Glenberg, 1997), as opposed to the classicist view that they are amodal eg Newell and Simon (1976), Fodor (1998). The fundamental problem of symbol grounding ( ...
