Making more sense out of users' utterances.

Simone Diniz Junqueira BarbosaClarisse Sieckenius de Souza

This article addresses extensible applications from a communicative perspective. Our approach brings to the user interface powerful interpretation mechanisms, that make use of domain and application models to assign meaning to non-literal user input, to explain to users how this meaning was reached and what is the corresponding literal expression. These mechanisms do so by an abductive process of generating volatile metaphors and metonymies that may explain users' input and help express users' intentions. In this way, they can also be used to help users achieve two goals. First, to understand the underlying domain and application models, if combined with explanations. The other is a more efficient way of communication that can serve rhetorical purposes such as focusing on some aspects of objects and not others.
