The ease with which these mental images are created belies the complexity of three-dimensional body shapes. We explored the relationship between body shapes and body descriptions and showed that a small number of words can be used to generate categorically accurate representations of three-dimensional bodies. The dimensions of body-shape variation that emerged in a language-based similarity space were related to major dimensions of variation computed directly from three-dimensional laser scans of 2,094 bodies. This relationship allowed us to generate three-dimensional models of people in the shape space using only their coordinates on analogous dimensions in the language-based description space. Human descriptions of photographed bodies and their corresponding models matched closely. The natural mapping between the spaces illustrates the role of language as a concise code for body shape that captures perceptually salient global and local body features.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Hahn, Carina A.</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/43483/1/Hill_2-ucdt2sitou3l5.pdf"/> <dcterms:title>Creating Body Shapes From Verbal Descriptions by Linking Similarity Spaces</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-10-10T10:12:20Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/43483/1/Hill_2-ucdt2sitou3l5.pdf"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Hill, Matthew Q.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Streuber, Stephan</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/43483"/> <dc:creator>Streuber, Stephan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Black, Michael J.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
