I am interested in how meaning works in natural languages,
regarding words such as red or salmon
(as opposed to words like not or
every, which have traditionally been the focus of formal
semantics). I work with computational and statistical methods, often within the framework of distributional semantics. Topics I am currently working on are anchoring meaning to the external world (reference), accounting for semantic composition, and linking distributional semantics to a broader semantic and linguistic theory.
Keywords: Computational linguistics; linguistics; computational semantics; semantic theory; distributional semantics; lexical semantics; compositional semantics; language resources; computational, quantitative and data-intensive approaches to language.
