Title: Spatial Language and Dialogue
Edited By: Kenny R. Coventry

Series Title: Explorations in Language and Space
Description:

This book considers how people talk about the location of objects and
places. Spatial language has occupied many researchers across diverse
fields, such as linguistics, psychology, GIScience, architecture, and
neuroscience. However, the vast majority of work in this area has examined
spatial language in monologue situations, and often in highly artificial
and restricted settings. Yet there is a growing recognition in the language
research community that dialogue rather than monologue should be a starting
point for language understanding. Hence, the current zeitgeist in both
language research and robotics/AI demands an integrated examination of
spatial language in dialogue settings. The present volume provides such
integration for the first time and reports on the latest developments in
this important field. Written in a way that will appeal to researchers
across disciplines from graduate level upwards, the book sets the agenda
for future research in spatial conceptualization and communication.
