Abstract

although steeles & belpaeme's (s&b) results may be useful for development of technical devices, their significance for behavioral sciences is very limited. this is because the question the authors asked was “why do people use similar words in a similar way?” rather than “how can similar words stand for similar experience?” the main problem is not shared word usage, but shared references.
