Solving difficulties in understanding in human-robot interaction (due to knowledge gaps or vagueness and ambiguity inherent to verbal communication) is a key issue, which – if not properly addressed by building on human interactional mechanisms – risks the success of the interaction because instructing the robot in useful ways may well be impossible and/or lead to non-acceptance of the technology by human users.
