Based on a mathematical model for Skinner's functional analysis of Verbal Behavior, we derive formal definitions for the concepts semantic anchor, utterance-meaning pair, and micro-local grammar. We show how these concepts can be used for designing a bidirectional interface connecting automatic speech recognition to meaning oriented language processing. A semi-automatic process for constructing components for such an interface from sparse data, e. g. collected from Wizard of Oz experiments, is… CONTINUE READING
