A MULTI-AGENT MODEL FOR SIMULATING THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL STRUCTURE IN LINGUISTIC CONVERGENCE

Gemma Bel-Enguix

Abstract

Baronchelli (Baronchelli et al., 2006) introduced a very simple model for simulating language emergence in communities of agents without any predetermined protocol. Brigatti (Brigatti, 2008) introduced the notion of Reputation in Baronchelli’s model, demonstrating how this parameter has an impact in the final results of the process. In a previous paper, we have shown that reputation is a key element in the coevolution of language and social structures in societies with asymmetrically distributed reputation. This paper presents a system for simulating linguistic convergence in static and dynamic populations with asymmetrically distributed reputation and a graphical representation of such process.
