The art and craft of semantics
The Art and Craft of Semantics is a Festschrift for Irene Heim that students, colleagues, and friends presented to her yesterday, October 30, 2014, on the occasion of her 60th birthday. I have two co-authored contributions in the collection:
- Kai von Fintel, Danny Fox, and Sabine Iatridou: Definiteness as Maximal Informativeness.
- Kai von Fintel and Angelika Kratzer: Modal Comparisons: Two Dilletantes in Search of an Expert.
The definiteness paper is a brief report on a rumored account that’s been floating around for a while. I hope there’ll be follow-up work. The modal comparison paper is a very short plea for Irene’s help with some puzzles that are simply too hard for Angelika and me.
Happy birthday, Irene!
