This paper 1 decdbes a computational treatment of the semantics of relational nouns. It covers relational nouns such as "sister.and "commander; and focuses especially on a particular subcategory of them, called function nouns ( 'speed; "distance', "rating'). Relational nouns are usually viewed as either requiring non-compositional semantic interpretation,(More)

An exemplar-based model of language acquisition is presented, based on a minimalist meaning representation. The model demonstrates that semantics and pragmatics in combination with unification and substitution mechanisms for recombination can account for both comprehension and production in the two word stage, as well as mimicking the discrepancy in(More)
