Research Interests

My research interests are centred around linguistic and philosophical theories of meaning and interaction. One focus is on the interplay of speech and gesture in communication: multimodal grammar (which has been a main topic of my PhD). In this context, we developed a semantic theory of iconic gestures (see Iconic Gesture Semantics). My favourite semantic framework is Type Theory with Records (TTR), which is also used to spell out Referential Transparency Theory (RTT), a semantic theory of pluralities and quantification (a main topic of my habilitation). Furthermore, I contribute to investigations of language use in specialized media and resources (e.g., educational learning or biodiversity).

Given the need of memory structures to explain dialogue phenomena and data, one of my recent research directions is to ground semantics in neurocognitive terms. In my work, I usually combine theoretical modelling, use of digital resources and/or experimental methods. This includes the building of several corpora which are used in linguistics and digital humanities research. I am concerned with topics such as the following (see list of publications):

  • syntax and semantics of spoken German and English
  • cognitive dialogue modelling
  • (deferred) reference
  • quantification
  • alignment
  • iconicity and perception
  • corpus annotation

Short Academic CV

From April 2019 until June 2023, I was a (part-time) PostDoc research fellow at the Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle (LLF) at the Université Paris Cité (formerly known as the Université de Paris and the Université Paris Diderot (Paris 7)). The fellowship involves my habilitation on Aspects of Multimodal Communication in September 2022.

In January 2011, I started to work as a research assistant at the Text Technology Lab at the Goethe University Frankfurt.

In 2011, I received my PhD in linguistics at Bielefeld University for my prolegomena for a linguistic theory of co-verbal iconic gesture. The work has been published in 2013 as “Ikonische Gesten. Grundzüge einer linguistischen Theorie”.

I studied linguistics, philosophy and German philology at Bielefeld University.

  abstract  = {Simulation-based learning is a method in which learners learn
               to master real-life scenarios and tasks from simulated application
               contexts. It is particularly suitable for the use of VR technologies,
               as these allow immersive experiences of the targeted scenarios.
               VR methods are also relevant for studies on online learning, especially
               in groups, as they provide access to a variety of multimodal learning
               and interaction data. However, VR leads to a trade-off between
               technological conditions of the observability of such data and
               the openness of learner behavior. We present Va.Si.Li-Lab, a VR-L
               ab for Simulation-based Learn ing developed to address this trade-off.
               Va.Si.Li-Lab uses a graph-theoretical model based on hypergraphs
               to represent the data diversity of multimodal learning and interaction.
               We develop this data model in relation to mono- and multimodal,
               intra- and interpersonal data and interleave it with ISO-Space
               to describe distributed multiple documents from the perspective
               of their interactive generation. The paper adds three use cases
               to motivate the broad applicability of Va.Si.Li-Lab and its data
               model.},

               its evaluation on text samples from various genres, and share

               generic tasks among graduates/young professionals from three domains},
  abstract  = {Although Critical Online Reasoning (COR) is often viewed as a
               general competency (e.g. Alexander et al. 2016), studies have
               found evidence supporting their domain-specificity (Toplak et
               al. 2002). To investigate this assumption, we focus on commonalities
               and differences in textual preferences in solving COR-related
               tasks between graduates/young professionals from three domains.
               For this reason, we collected data by requiring participants to
               solve domain-specific (DOM-COR) and generic (GEN-COR) tasks in
               an authentic Internet-based COR performance assessment (CORA),
               allowing us to disentangle the assumed components of COR abilities.
               Here, we focus on GEN-COR to distinguish between different groups
               of graduates from the three disciplines in the context of generic
               COR tasks. We present a computational model for educationally
               relevant texts that combines features at multiple levels (lexical,
               syntactic, semantic). We use machine learning to predict domain-specific
               group membership based on documents consulted during task solving.
               A major contribution of our analyses is a multi-part text classification
               system that contrasts human annotation and rating of the documents
               used with a semi-automatic classification to predict the document
               type of web pages. That is, we work with competing classifications
               to support our findings. In this way, we develop a computational
               linguistic model that correlates GEN-COR abilities with properties
               of documents consulted for solving the GEN-COR tasks. Results
               show that participants from different domains indeed inquire different
               sets of online sources for the same task. Machine learning-based
               classifications show that the distributional differences can be
               reproduced by computational linguistic models.},

  abstract  = {The storage of data in public repositories such as the Global
               Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) or the National Center
               for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is nowadays stipulated in
               the policies of many publishers in order to facilitate data replication
               or proliferation. Species occurrence records contained in legacy
               printed literature are no exception to this. The extent of their
               digital and machine-readable availability, however, is still far
               from matching the existing data volume (Thessen and Parr 2014).
               But precisely these data are becoming more and more relevant to
               the investigation of ongoing loss of biodiversity. In order to
               extract species occurrence records at a larger scale from available
               publications, one has to apply specialised text mining tools.
               However, such tools are in short supply especially for scientific
               literature in the German language.The Specialised Information
               Service Biodiversity Research*1 BIOfid (Koch et al. 2017) aims
               at reducing this desideratum, inter alia, by preparing a searchable
               text corpus semantically enriched by a new kind of multi-label
               annotation. For this purpose, we feed manual annotations into
               automatic, machine-learning annotators. This mixture of automatic
               and manual methods is needed, because BIOfid approaches a new
               application area with respect to language (mainly German of the
               19th century), text type (biological reports), and linguistic
               focus (technical and everyday language).We will present current
               results of the performance of BIOfid’s semantic search engine
               and the application of independent natural language processing
               (NLP) tools. Most of these are freely available online, such as
               TextImager (Hemati et al. 2016). We will show how TextImager is
               tied into the BIOfid pipeline and how it is made scalable (e.g.
               extendible by further modules) and usable on different systems
               (docker containers).Further, we will provide a short introduction
               to generating machine-learning training data using TextAnnotator
               (Abrami et al. 2019) for multi-label annotation. Annotation reproducibility
               can be assessed by the implementation of inter-annotator agreement
               methods (Abrami et al. 2020). Beyond taxon recognition and entity
               linking, we place particular emphasis on location and time information.
               For this purpose, our annotation tag-set combines general categories
               and biology-specific categories (including taxonomic names) with
               location and time ontologies. The application of the annotation
               categories is regimented by annotation guidelines (Lücking et
               al. 2020). Within the next years, our work deliverable will be
               a semantically accessible and data-extractable text corpus of
               around two million pages. In this way, BIOfid is creating a new
               valuable resource that expands our knowledge of biodiversity and
               its determinants.},

  abstract  = {Modern annotation tools should meet at least the following general
               requirements: they can handle diverse data and annotation levels
               within one tool, and they support the annotation process with
               automatic (pre-)processing outcomes as much as possible. We developed
               a framework that meets these general requirements and that enables
               versatile and browser-based annotations of texts, the TextAnnotator.
               It combines NLP methods of pre-processing with methods of flexible
               post-processing. Infact, machine learning (ML) requires a lot
               of training and test data, but is usually far from achieving perfect
               results. Producing high-level annotations for ML and post-correcting
               its results are therefore necessary. This is the purpose of TextAnnotator,
               which is entirely implemented in ExtJS and provides a range of
               interactive visualizations of annotations. In addition, it allows
               for flexibly integrating knowledge resources, e.g. in the course
               of post-processing named entity recognition. The paper describes
               TextAnnotator’s architecture together with three use cases: annotating
               temporal structures, argument structures and named entity linking.}

  abstract  = {This chapter develops a computational linguistic model for analyzing
               and comparing multilingual data as well as its application to
               a large body of standardized assessment data from higher education.
               The approach employs both an automatic and a manual annotation
               of the data on several linguistic layers (including parts of speech,
               text structure and content). Quantitative features of the textual
               data are explored that are related to both the students' (domain-specific
               knowledge) test results and their level of academic experience.
               The respective analysis involves statistics of distance correlation,
               text categorization with respect to text types (questions and
               response options) as well as languages (English and German), and
               network analysis to assess dependencies between features. The
               correlation between correct test results of students and linguistic
               features of the verbal presentations of tests indicate to what
               extent language influences higher education test performance.
               It has also been found that this influence relates to specialized
               language. Thus, this integrative modeling approach contributes
               a test basis for a large-scale analysis of learning data and points
               to a number of subsequent, more detailed research questions.},

               of syntactic dependency trees. Our ultimate goal is to generate
               fingerprints of such trees to predict the author of the underlying
               sentences. The chapter makes a first attempt to create such fingerprints
               for sentence categorization via the detour of text categorization.
               We show that at text level, aggregated dependency structures actually
               provide information about authorship. At the same time, we show
               that this does not hold for topic detection. We evaluate our model
               using a quarter of a million sentences collected in two corpora:
               the first is sampled from literary texts, the second from Wikipedia
               articles. As a second finding of our approach, we show that quantitative
               models of dependency structure do not yet allow for detecting
               syntactic alignment in written communication. We conclude that
               this is mainly due to effects of lexical alignment on syntactic
               alignment.},

  abstract  = {Current semantic theory on indexical expressions claims that demonstratively
               used indexicals such as this lack a referent-determining meaning
               but instead rely on an accompanying demonstration act like a pointing
               gesture. While this view allows to set up a sound logic of demonstratives,
               the direct-referential role assigned to pointing gestures has
               never been scrutinized thoroughly in semantics or pragmatics.
               We investigate the semantics and pragmatics of co-verbal pointing
               from a foundational perspective combining experiments, statistical
               investigation, computer simulation and theoretical modeling techniques
               in a novel manner. We evaluate various referential hypotheses
               with a corpus of object identification games set up in experiments
               in which body movement tracking techniques have been extensively
               used to generate precise pointing measurements. Statistical investigation
               and computer simulations show that especially distal areas in
               the pointing domain falsify the semantic direct-referential hypotheses
               concerning pointing gestures. As an alternative, we propose that
               reference involving pointing rests on a default inference which
               we specify using the empirical data. These results raise numerous
               problems for classical semantics–pragmatics interfaces: we argue
               for pre-semantic pragmatics in order to account for inferential
               reference in addition to classical post-semantic Gricean pragmatics.},

               context of authoring image-related hypertexts by example of the
               museum information system WikiNect. To this end, a first implementation
               of gestural writing based on image schemata is provided (Lakoff
               in Women, fire, and dangerous things: what categories reveal about
               the mind. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1987). Gestural
               writing is defined as a sort of coding in which propositions are
               only expressed by means of gestures. In this respect, it is shown
               that image schemata allow for bridging between natural language
               predicates and gestural manifestations. Further, it is demonstrated
               that gestural writing primarily focuses on the perceptual level
               of image descriptions (Hollink et al. in Int J Hum Comput Stud
               61(5):601–626, 2004). By exploring the metaphorical potential
               of image schemata, it is finally illustrated how to extend the
               expressiveness of gestural writing in order to reach the conceptual
               level of image descriptions. In this context, the paper paves
               the way for implementing museum information systems like WikiNect
               as systems of kinetic hypertext authoring based on full-fledged
               gestural writing.},

               Firstly, it is argued that symbol grounding in general has to
               be instrinsic. Current approaches in this context, however, are
               limited to a certain kind of expression that can be grounded in
               this way. Secondly, we identify three requirements for conversational
               grounding, the process leading to mutual understanding. Finally,
               we sketch a test case for symbol grounding in the form of the
               philosophical grounding problem that involves the use of modal
               language. Together, the three grounding problems provide a grid

               pinpoint future developments on these grounds.},

  abstract  = {The Naming Game (NG) has become a vivid research paradigm for
               simulation studies on language evolution and the establishment
               of naming conventions. Recently, NGs were used for reconstructing
               the creation of linguistic categories, most notably for color
               terms. We recap the functional principle of NGs and the latter
               Categorization Games (CGs) and evaluate them in the light of semantic
               data of linguistic categorization outside the domain of colors.
               This comparison reveals two specifics of the CG paradigm: Firstly,
               the emerging categories draw basically on the predefined topology
               of the learning domain. Secondly, the kind of categories that
               can be learnt in CGs is bound to context-independent intersective
               categories. This suggests that the NG and the CG focus on a special
               aspect of natural language categorization, which disregards context-sensitive
               categories used in a non-compositional manner.},

               Time-Aligned Network) series. TiTAN series capture the formation
               and structure of dialog lexica in terms of serialized graph representations.
               The dynamic update of TiTAN series is driven by the dialog-inherent
               timing of turn-taking. The model provides a link between neural,
               connectionist underpinnings of dialog lexica on the one hand and
               observable symbolic behavior on the other. On the neural side,
               priming and spreading activation are modeled in terms of TiTAN
               networking. On the symbolic side, TiTAN series account for cognitive
               alignment in terms of the structural coupling of the linguistic
               representations of dialog partners. This structural stance allows
               us to apply TiTAN in machine learning of data of dialogical alignment.
               In previous studies, it has been shown that aligned dialogs can
               be distinguished from non-aligned ones by means of TiTAN -based
               modeling. Now, we simultaneously apply this model to two types
               of dialog: task-oriented, experimentally controlled dialogs on
               the one hand and more spontaneous, direction giving dialogs on
               the other. We ask whether it is possible to separate aligned dialogs
               from non-aligned ones in a type-crossing way. Starting from a
               recent experiment (Mehler, Lücking, \& Menke, 2011a), we show
               that such a type-crossing classification is indeed possible. This
               hints at a structural fingerprint left by alignment in networks
               of linguistic items that are routinely co-activated during conversation.},

               To this end, WikiNect integrates three approaches to Human-Computer
               Interaction (HCI): games with a purpose, wiki-based collaborative
               writing and kinetic text-technologies. Our aim is to develop kinetic
               technologies as a new paradigm of HCI. They dispense with classical
               interfaces (e.g., keyboards) in that they build on non-contact
               modes of communication like gestures or facial expressions as
               input displays. In this paper, we introduce the notion of gestural
               writing as a kinetic text-technology that underlies WikiNect to
               enable museum visitors to communicate their feedback. The basic
               idea is to explore sequences of gestures that share the semantic
               expressivity of verbally manifested speech acts. Our task is to
               identify such gestures that are learnable on-site in the usage
               scenario of WikiNect. This is done by referring to so-called transient
               gestures as part of multimodal ensembles, which are candidate
               gestures of the desired functionality.},

  abstract  = {Currently, some simulative accounts exist within dynamic or evolutionary
               frameworks that are concerned with the development of linguistic
               categories within a population of language users. Although these
               studies mostly emphasize that their models are abstract, the paradigm
               categorization domain is preferably that of colors. In this paper,
               the authors argue that color adjectives are special predicates
               in both linguistic and metaphysical terms: semantically, they
               are intersective predicates, metaphysically, color properties
               can be empirically reduced onto purely physical properties. The
               restriction of categorization simulations to the color paradigm
               systematically leads to ignoring two ubiquitous features of natural
               language predicates, namely relativity and context-dependency.
               Therefore, the models for simulation models of linguistic categories

               three-dimensional grid of ascending complexity that is partitioned
               according to the semiotic triangle. They also develop a conceptual
               model in the form of a decision grid by means of which the complexity
               level of simulation models of linguistic categorization can be
               assessed in linguistic terms.},

               linguistically, that is, they align interpersonally. In this article,
               we develop a framework for modeling interpersonal alignment in
               terms of the structural similarity of the interlocutors’ dialog
               lexica. This is done by means of so-called two-layer time-aligned
               network series, that is, a time-adjusted graph model. The graph
               model is partitioned into two layers, so that the interlocutors’
               lexica are captured as subgraphs of an encompassing dialog graph.
               Each constituent network of the series is updated utterance-wise.
               Thus, both the inherent bipartition of dyadic conversations and
               their gradual development are modeled. The notion of alignment
               is then operationalized within a quantitative model of structure
               formation based on the mutual information of the subgraphs that
               represent the interlocutor’s dialog lexica. By adapting and further
               developing several models of complex network theory, we show that
               dialog lexica evolve as a novel class of graphs that have not
               been considered before in the area of complex (linguistic) networks.
               Additionally, we show that our framework allows for classifying
               dialogs according to their alignment status. To the best of our
               knowledge, this is the first approach to measuring alignment in
               communication that explores the similarities of graph-like cognitive
               representations.},

               dyadic communication – e.g., phonetic, syntactic, semantic alignment
               – we provide evidence for a genuine multimodal alignment process,
               namely semiotic alignment. Communicative elements from different
               modalities 'routinize into' cross-modal 'super-signs', which we
               call multimodal ensembles. Computational models of human communication
               are in need of expressive models of multimodal ensembles. In this
               paper, we exemplify semiotic alignment by means of empirical examples
               of the building of multimodal ensembles. We then propose a graph
               model of multimodal dialogue that is expressive enough to capture
               multimodal ensembles. In line with this model, we define a novel
               task in machine learning with the aim of training classifiers
               that can detect semiotic alignment in dialogue. This model is
               in support of approaches which need to gain insights into realistic
               human-machine communication.},

               about cervical auscultation (CA) as a scientifically justifiable
               and medically useful tool to identify patients with a high risk
               of aspiration/penetration. We sought to determine (1) acoustic
               features that mark a deglutition act as dysphagic; (2) acoustic
               changes in healthy older deglutition profiles compared with those
               of younger adults; (3) the correctness and concordance of rater
               judgments based on CA; and (4) if education in CA improves individual
               reliability. The first part of the study focused on a comparison
               of the swallow morphology of dysphagic as opposed to healthy subjects
               deglutition in terms of structure properties of the pharyngeal
               phase of deglutition. We obtained the following results. The duration
               of deglutition apnea is significantly higher in the older group
               than in the younger one. Comparing the younger group and the dysphagic
               group we found significant differences in duration of deglutition
               apnea, onset time, and number of gulps. Just one parameter, number
               of gulps, distinguishes significantly between the older and the
               dysphagic groups. The second part of the study aimed at evaluating
               the reliability of CA in detecting dysphagia measured as the concordance
               and the correctness of CA experts in classifying swallowing sounds.
               The interrater reliability coefficient AC1 resulted in a value
               of 0.46, which is to be interpreted as fair agreement. Furthermore,
               we found that comparison with radiologically defined aspiration/penetration
               for the group of experts (speech and language therapists) yielded
               70\% specificity and 94\% sensitivity. We conclude that the swallowing
               sounds contain audible cues that should, in principle, permit
               reliable classification and view CA as an early warning system
               for identifying patients with a high risk of aspiration/penetration;
               however, it is not appropriate as a stand-alone tool.},

               are not a big issue in current theories of grammar. If we deal
               with gestures, fixing their function is one big problem, the other
               one is how to integrate the representations originating from different
               channels and, ultimately, how to determine their composite meanings.
               The growing interest in multi-modal settings, computer simulations,
               human-machine interfaces and VR-applications increases the need

  abstract  = {We describe an experiment to gather original data on geometrical
               aspects of pointing. In particular, we are focusing upon the concept
               of the pointing cone, a geometrical model of a pointing’s extension.
               In our setting we employed methodological and technical procedures
               of a new type to integrate data from annotations as well as from
               tracker recordings. We combined exact information on position
               and orientation with rater’s classifications. Our first results
               seem to challenge classical linguistic and philosophical theories
               of demonstration in that they advise to separate pointings from
               reference.},

  abstract  = {We present a statistical approach to assess relations that hold
               among speech and pointing gestures in and between turns in task-oriented
               dialogue. The units quantified over are the time-stamps of the
               XML-based annotation of the digital video data. It was found that,
               on average, gesture strokes do not exceed, but are freely distributed
               over the time span of their linguistic affiliates. Further, the
               onset of the affiliate was observed to occur earlier than gesture
               initiation. Moreover, we found that gestures do obey certain appropriateness
               conditions and contribute semantic content ('gestures save words')
               as well. Gestures also seem to play a functional role wrt dialogue
               structure: There is evidence that gestures can contribute to the
               bundle of features making up a turn-taking signal. Some statistical
               results support a partitioning of the domain, which is also reflected
               in certain rating difficulties. However, our evaluation of the
               applied annotation scheme generally resulted in very good agreement},
