Towards Linguistically-Grounded Spatial Logics

10131.HoisJoana.Paper.2729.pdf (0.2 MB)


We propose a method to analyze the amount of coverage and adequacy of spatial calculi by relating a calculus to a linguistic ontology for space by using similarities and linguistic corpus data. This allows evaluating whether and where a spatial calculus can be used for natural language interpretation. It can also lead to 'more appropriate' spatial logics for spatial language.
