Research Interests

I am mainly interested in meaning in natural languages, how it is encoded, how it is expressed, and how it can change through time.

More specifically, these are the domains that I am interested in, and have done research on (in no particular order):

  • Formal semantics, and the syntax-semantics interface
  • Pragmatics (and especially in non-cooperative frameworks/set-ups)
  • Discourse phenomena (focus particles, argumentation, …)
  • Formal accounts of language change
  • Competition between forms, and its impact on meaning
