Abstract

This paper gives a brief retrospective of a research project begun in 1987 and continuing to the present on the topic of language acquisition by an autonomous humanoid robot. We recount the motivations for, theoretical bases of and experimental results on this subject. Important results include novel models and algorithms resulting in interesting linguistic function of our robots.
