I'm a PhD student in the linguistics department at The Ohio State University. 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. Recently, I've been working on speaker commitment: how do speakers express (un)certainty with respect to the claims that they make, and how is this (un)certainty interpreted?
