Joana Hois and Oliver Kutz. Towards Linguistically-Grounded Spatial Logics. In Spatial Representation and Reasoning in Language : Ontologies and Logics of Space. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10131, pp. 1-3, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2011)


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.
