    Flexibility in Embodied Language Processing: Context Effects in Lexical Access.Wessel O. van Dam, Inti A. Brazil, Harold Bekkering & Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer - 2014 - Topics in Cognitive Science 6 (3):407-424.
    According to embodied theories of language (ETLs), word meaning relies on sensorimotor brain areas, generally dedicated to acting and perceiving in the real world. More specifically, words denoting actions are postulated to make use of neural motor areas, while words denoting visual properties draw on the resources of visual brain areas. Therefore, there is a direct correspondence between word meaning and the experience a listener has had with a word's referent on the brain level. Behavioral and neuroimaging studies have provided (...)

    Symbols in numbers: from numerals to magnitude information.Oliver Lindemann, Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer & Harold Bekkering - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (3-4):341-342.
    A dual-code model of number processing needs to take into account the difference between a number symbol and its meaning. The transition of automatic non-abstract number representations into intentional abstract representations could be conceptualized as a translation of perceptual asemantic representations of numerals into semantic representations of the associated magnitude information. The controversy about the nature of number representations should be thus related to theories on embodied grounding of symbols.
