Abstract

This response discusses the experiment reported in Krahmer et al.'s Letter to the Editor of Cognitive Science. WE observe that their results do not tell us whether the Incremental Algorithm is better or worse than its competitors, and we speculate about implications for reference in complex domains, and for learning from "normal" (i.e., non-semantically-balanced) corpora.
