An approach to meaning generation that allows groundings of the meaning is used [1]. Considering that meaning generation is key to cognition, such approach goes with grounding of cognition in sensorimotor coordination. Starting point is meaning generation by a system submitted to a constraint when it receives an incident information that has a connection with the constraint. The system generates a meaningful information (a meaning) in order to trigger an action that will satisfy its constraint. The generated meaning is precisely the connection existing between the received information and the constraint[2]. This simple process allows defining a Meaning Generator System (MGS) as well as groundings of the meaning in /out of the MGS. The action modifies the environment and the generated meaning. This provides some coverage for sensorimotor coordination, and also brings on the same picture constructivist and objectivist aspects.
