Kai von Fintel

This is the website of Kai von Fintel. I’m a professor of linguistics at MIT. I work on meaning. I am also Associate Dean of MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. I have a wife, two kids, two cats, and a dog. I live in an intentional community (Mosaic Commons Cohousing) in Berlin, Massachusetts. I am a runner. I like soccer, a lot. I was born on a cold winter’s night in a small village on the L√ľneburg Heath in Northern Germany.
