Human visual system interprets information obtained through eyes to build a model of the surrounding world. This channel is our main source for understanding the world. Walking on a street, reading a book, or watching a movie all rely on our visual system. The relationship between movement, visual perception and language is complex. Movement is a specific focus of this presentation for several reasons. It is a fundamental part of human activities that ground our understanding of the world. Abstract meanings are often constructed as metaphoric extensions of movement schemas. As there is an increasing amount of video and motion tracking data available, formation of semantic models based on movement using computational methods is becoming feasible. In addition to movement, multilinguality and subjectivity of understanding are also addressed.
