My research focuses on linguistic meaning, primarily using experimental and corpus-based methods. In particular, I'm interested in the interface between different types of linguistic meaning: the literal meanings of words (semantics), meaning arising from context (pragmatics), and meaning that has to do with agents' social identities (social meaning).
