Perception in interaction -


This project uses corpora of video-recorded interaction in a range of languages and cultures to study the meanings and uses of basic perception words like see, hear, touch, taste, and smell in conversation. The project examines the lexical semantics and semantic typology of perception words quantitatively and describes and accounts for uses of perception words in interaction that occur cross-linguistically.
