The project “Reference in Discourse” deals with the selection of a specific object from a visual scene in a natural language situation. The goal of this research is to explain this everyday discourse reference task in terms of a concept generation process based on subconceptual visual and verbal information. The system OINC (Object Identification in Natural Communicators) aims at solving this problem in a psychologically adequate way. The system’s difficulties occurring with incomplete and deviant descriptions correspond to the data from experiments with human subjects. The results of these experiments are reported.
