Abstract

The icon language interface is designed to provide the people with language disabilities with more smooth and convenient communication environment than the traditional keyboard-based input system. In order for that, vocabulary commanding tendencies and characteristics of proto-corpus built upon the frequently-used conversation sections will be analyzed, and the Korean language’s vocabulary and their meanings applied to the icons will be retrieved by the use of morpheme, phrase and semantic analysis techniques. The icon types to be intuitively recognized and communicable by users are selected, and they are matched with the retrieved Korean vocabulary and meanings. In order to create a relevant situation to communicate from the relations between neighboring icons, the icon language is formed through the each definition of icon language’s vocabulary, grammar rules, parts of speech and semantic system.
