The scientific focus of the professorship in semantics is on the meaning of language in the semantics-pragmatics interface with a special focus on semantic phenomena of visual communication, dimensions of meaning and multimodality, iconicity, information structure, quantification, and indefiniteness. Current research projects are concerned with phenomena of visual communication, especially with the contribution of gesture to the meaning of speech.
