    Abstract : The ability to understand and communicate about the actions of others is a fundamental aspect of our daily activity. How can we talk about what others are doing? What qualities do different actions have such that they cause us to see them as being different or similar? What is the connection between what we see and the development of concepts and words or expressions for the things that we see?

The broad purpose of this thesis is to relate aspects of perception, categorization and language to action recognition and conceptualization. READ MORE
