speaking, I am a linguist . My main interest as a teacher
and a researcher is in the study of how different languages
assemble words to form sentences (syntax) and how sentences
can be used to convey meaning (semantics and pragmatics).
If you like linguistic jargon, I am a linguist who is interested
in crosslinguistic formal semantics and its interfaces with
formal pragmatics and syntax.
other projects, I am currently working on an intellectual
and personal biography of Richard Montague
(1930-1971), a brilliant philosopher and logician, who, among
other achievements, fathered formal semantics just a few years
before he was murdered. I have been conducting archival researches
and interviews for the past three years. I was awarded an
Fellowship and a CASBS
Fellowship at Stanford University in
2014-2015 to work on my project.
