My main research interest is the nature of knowledge of language and linguistic understanding, and the role of that knowledge in communication. My other interests include: the philosophy of language; the communication of knowledge through testimony; the nature of linguistic properties; the semantics and metaphysics associated with talk about events, processes, and states; the philosophy of linguistics; the nature of perception, especially perception of speech; and the history of analytic philosophy, especially the work of Frege and Russell.
