    The aim of this paper is to examine how recent research findings and methodologies from the field of cognitive science could be utilised to inform the design and evaluation of cross-modal mappings for multimodal user interaction. In this paper we argue that by using empirical methods to enact embodied knowledge about cross-modal correspondences, we can form an adequate empirical framework for the design of multimodal mappings that successfully align with prior perceptual knowledge. This alignment can significantly improve the human computer dialogue and the analytical, creative and pedagogical value of user interfaces.
