The Linguistic Semantics Lab (LiSLab) is dedicated to the study of foundational questions in semantic/pragmatic theory through empirically rich studies of diverse languages. Particular areas of interest include definiteness, quantification, gradability, and the fault lines where they meet. LiSLab uses a variety of methods, including targeted comparative fieldwork across a broad sample of languages, in-depth field studies of particular languages, corpus-based methods, and experimental methods including picture selection, truth/validity judgments, and eye-tracking (in collaboration with other labs).
