This chapter examines the complexity of the competing and complimentary forms of language that emerge when individuals arrive in the MoCap studio from disciplines with their own traditions. It reveals the limitations of language in the MoCap studio, introduces the workshop participants from the practical aspects of the study and begins to generate a common language for PeCap, which emerges from an active translation of terms used in Motion Capture. Nine discrete terms that do not come from the disciplines of theatre, film or animation are introduced here. These terms are: Motion Capture (MoCap), Performance Capture (PeCap), Marker Set, Calibration, T-Pose, Range of Motion (ROM), Template, Capture Volume and Frame.
