Hi all,
I would like to invite you for the next upcoming Talk in our CCD Seminars
on TUESDAY the 12th of February from 4 to 5.30 pm.
I hope you all take the time to come and listen.

Who: Professor Peter Gaerdenfors, Lund University;
 When: *TUESDAY (12th of February 2013), 4 - 5.30 pm*
Where: The Australian Hearing Hub Meeting, *Room  3.610*,  South Wing,
Macquarie University
What: *The geometry of meaning: Semantics based on conceptual spaces*

The talk presents a semantic theory based on conceptual spaces. In
particular the theory provides a cognitive grounding of word classes.
Meanings of words are analyzed as convex regions in different domains. I
develop cognitive models of actions and events.
These models are then used to present semantic analysis of verbs. I also
show how the meaning of prepositions can be analyzed in geometric terms.

Please feel free to attend also another talk presented by Professor Peter
Gaerdenfors on  Thursday 14 February 2013 at UTS, Sydney.
