Aging in Language Dynamics
It is argued that this can be a general scenario in language dynamics where shared linguistic conventions would not emerge as attractors, but rather as metastable states, and the observed emerging asymptotic categorization corresponds to a metastable state.
Modeling the emergence of universality in color naming patterns
This work finds that a simple perceptual constraint shared by all humans, namely the human Just Noticeable Difference (JND), is sufficient to trigger the emergence of universal patterns that unconstrained cultural interaction fails to produce and confirms that synthetic modeling has nowadays reached the maturity to contribute significantly to the ongoing debate in cognitive science.
Explaining Color Term Typology With an Evolutionary Model
An expression-induction model was used to simulate the evolution of basic color terms to test Berlin and Kay's (1969) hypothesis that the typological patterns observed in basic color term systems are
coordinating perceptually grounded categories through language: a case study for colour
A number of models are proposed to examine through which mechanisms a population of autonomous agents could arrive at a repertoire of perceptually grounded categories that is sufficiently shared to allow successful communication.

Results show that for realistically modeled populations, dichromats have the strongest influence on the color categorization; their characteristic forms of color confusion affect color boundary locations and accord with findings for homogeneous dichromat populations.

In this chapter, I intend to apply results of the four previous chapters in order to elucidate main traits of the PI. I do not intend to give an account of the whole book, nor get into the details of
