Human Communication: What Happens?

Research output: Working paper/PreprintWorking paper


The development of information technology opens up new venues of human communication. So far, most research has been devoted to the technological side of communication. By analysing the metaphors that are used to talk about communication, the differences between technological and human communication can be targeted. What is needed in order to understand human communication is more knowledge about the contents of what is communicated, not only the coding. Cognitive semantics offers a promising way to analyse how linguistic information is connected with perception and memory. But we should also consider what cognitive processes are involved in dialogues between people in order to further develop the forms of human communication with and via computers
