An Expressive-Relativist Theory of Subjective Language
Philosophy of Language, Semantics, Subjective Language, Contextualism, Semantic Relativism
My area of research is in philosophy of language and formal semantics focusing on subjective language. Particularly, I explore the meanings of predicates of personal taste (tasty, fun, etc.) and expressives (ouch, damn, fuckhead, etc.). I hope to develop a novel hybrid semantic theory to account for these phenomena, I call this view Expressive-Relativism.
I received my BA and MA at the University of Manchester. My PhD research is funded by the School of Social Sciences. My 4th year is partly funded by The Royal Institute of Philosophy bursary.
