Research

My main areas of research are semantics and the syntax–semantics interface. I am especially interested in crosslinguistic variation in semantics. I do both theoretical and descriptive work, and most recently have studied quantificational structures in Kipsigis (Nilotic, Kenya) and Logoori (Bantu, Kenya).  The following are some of my recent publications; please feel free to contact me for copies.
