This paper describes a system which gen- erates animations for cooking actions in recipes, to help people understand recipes written in Japanese. The major goal of this research is to increase the scalability of the system, i.e., to develop a system which can handle various kinds of cooking actions. We designed and compiled the lexicon of cooking actions required for the animation generation system. The lexicon includes the action plan used for animation genera- tion, and the information about ingredients upon which the cooking action is taken. Preliminary evaluation shows that our lex- icon contains most of the cooking actions that appear in Japanese recipes. We also discuss how to handle linguistic expres- sions in recipes, which are not included in the lexicon, in order to generate anim...
