Whereas we believe that the embodied theory Language and Body 21 that develops will have many of the characteristics of a constraint-based approach to language comprehension, it is our sense that theorizing on the embodied approach will become more strongly identified with theories of perception and motor planning than with current theories of language comprehension. , Wolpert’s hierarchical modular selection and identification for control, or H-MOSAIC, model of motor control; Wolpert, Doya, & Kawato, 2003).

This proposal is similar to Lakoff and Johnson’s (1980) claims about the understanding of abstractions through metaphorical extension of concrete situations. A number of subsequent studies have attempted to take a finer look at the temporal and linguistic dynamics of the ACE. Borreggine and Kaschak (2006) replicated the Glenberg and Kaschak (2002) study but varied the time point at which participants were told what the nature of their motor response would be. These studies show that the ACE arises only when participants know which direction their motor response will go while they are processing the sentence; when their knowledge of the direction of action is delayed until after the end of the sentence, participants show no hint of the ACE.
