Giovanna Pirillo (GU Frankfurt)

The scientific focus of the professorship in semantics lies in researching of language meaning on the interface between semantics and pragmatics. I am especially interested in dimensions of meaning and multimodality, iconicity, information structure, quantification and indefinitives. Current research projects are concerned with the contribution of gesture to the meaning of speech.
