The scientific focus of the professorship in semantics is on the meaning of language in the semantics-pragmatics interface. The main research topics are dimensions of meaning and multimodality, iconicity, information structure, quantification, and indefinites. Current research projects are concerned with the contribution of gesture to the meaning of speech.
