About me

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.

Not all papers you will find below have a direct connection with natural language. For some of the more formal work that I have done the relation is indirect.
