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.
am currenlty working on a biography of Richard Montague
(1930-1971), a brilliant philosopher and logician, who fathered
formal semantics just a few years before he was murdered.
I have been conducting archival reseraches and interviews
for the past two years. I have been awarded an ACLS
Fellowship and a CASBS
Fellowship at Stanford University in
2014-2015 to write the book.
