Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We outline a way to use Goguen’s (2006) account of conceptual blending in the cognitive architecture ACT-R. Despite recent advances in linguistics and general accounts of conceptual blending (for example, Fauconnier and Turner 2002, 2008) it has received scant attention in cognitive modelling, which is partly due to the fact that there are hardly any computational accounts of this phenomenon, Goguen’s being one of them.
