Spontaneous Dynamic Assimilation of Commands and Cognomens

      Disclosed an interactive process through which a computer
incorporating speech recognition determines the meaning of a new
term, such as a command or cognomen spoken by the user.

      With this process, after the user speaks a new term, the
computer, failing to find a meaning for the term, stores the term.
The user then chooses a known term or uses a different approach, such
as a pointing device, to convey the meaning of the term which could
not be understood.  After the computer reaches an apparent
understanding of the term, it requests confirmation from the user.
After the user confirms equivalence, the computer adds the new term
to its list of equivalents.  Subsequently, if the user uses the same
term, the computer finds the association of the term and executes the
requested process without user intervention.

      This interactive process is especially convenient for the user,
since it mirrors methods used with the speech modality in
human-to-human interactions.
