Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the logic of ordinary language. Logicians study concepts such as truth, consequence, proof, computation and information with the help of formal languages, but it has increasingly become clear that many insights thus obtained also apply to ordinary spoken and written languages. My particular interest is in the question how linguistic expressions manage to carry meaning.

For more information, see my website, where you can find my CV and pdf versions of most of my publications. Google Scholar, and my PhilPeople site are alternative options.
