Abstract

People use spatial language in everyday face-to-face conversation, and we also now use such language
during everyday computer-mediated interactions. Commonly, such interactions can take place over
mobile phones or in shared virtual environments such as multiplayer games. However, to date, very few
academic studies have looked at how people use and understanding of spatial language might differ
when it is computer mediated. Our own experimentation has investigated the relation between the uses
of route, survey, and also gaze perspectives in a simple virtual environment.
