Phase transitions in a decentralized graph-based approach to human language

no code implementations4 Mar 2020 Javier Vera, Felipe Urbina, Wenceslao Palma

The aim here is double: within a bipartite-graph approach to human vocabularies, to propose a decentralized language game model for the formation of Zipfian properties.

A decentralized route to the origins of scaling in human language

no code implementations16 May 2017 Felipe Urbina, Javier Vera

The Zipf's law establishes that if the words of a (large) text are ordered by decreasing frequency, the frequency versus the rank decreases as a power law with exponent close to $-1$.

Self-organization of vocabularies under different interaction orders

no code implementations17 Mar 2016 Javier Vera

Traditionally, the formation of vocabularies has been studied by agent-based models (specially, the Naming Game) in which random pairs of agents negotiate word-meaning associations at each discrete time step.

Modeling self-organization of vocabularies under phonological similarity effects

no code implementations17 Mar 2016 Javier Vera

This work develops a computational model (by Automata Networks) of phonological similarity effects involved in the formation of word-meaning associations on artificial populations of speakers.

Automata networks for multi-party communication in the Naming Game

no code implementations8 Oct 2015 Javier Vera, Pedro Montealegre, Eric Goles

Finally, computer simulations are explored in two-dimensional lattices with the purpose to recover the main features of the Naming Game and to describe the dynamics under different updating schemes.

Automata networks model for alignment and least effort on vocabulary formation

no code implementations7 Aug 2015 Javier Vera, Felipe Urbina, Eric Goles

Can artificial communities of agents develop language with scaling relations close to the Zipf law?

Automata networks for memory loss effects in the formation of linguistic conventions

no code implementations7 Aug 2015 Javier Vera, Eric Goles

This work attempts to give new theoretical insights to the absence of intermediate stages in the evolution of language.
