We address the complex problem of semantic heterogeneity in multiagent communication by looking at semantics related to interaction. Our approach takes the state of the interaction in which agents are engaged as the basis on which the semantic alignment rests. In this paper we describe an implementation of this technique and provide experimental results on interactions of varying complexity.
