Research Interests

Anything relating to formal semantics and linguistic structure, or formal semantics and pragmatics, is of interest to me. In recent years I have worked on the following topics:

– Formal syntax/semantics of spoken Arabic,
– Vagueness/gradability and linguistic representations thereof (degree semantics),
– Disjunction and free choice inferences,
– The semantics of “only” and connections to scalar implicature,
– The semantics of tense and aspect.
