Who is Katarzyna Jaszczolt?

Katarzyna Jaszczolt, D.Phil., PhD, is Professor of Linguistics and Philosophy of Language at the Department of Linguistics, University of Cambridge, and Fellow and Director of Studies in Linguistics at Newnham College, Cambridge.

She is the author of a theory of discourse interpretation, Default Semantics, in which she breaks away from the tradition of modelling utterance meaning by means of a sentence-based proposition and proposes instead so-called merger representations which combine the output of various sources and processes leading to the recovery of speaker meaning, shifting compositionality from the level of syntactic structures to the level of the merger. She is General Editor of a book series Oxford Studies of Time in Language and Thought, Oxford University Press and member of several editorial boards of linguistics journals, including Journal of Pragmatics, Intercultural Pragmatics and Belgian Journal of Linguistics, and book series, including Studies in Pragmatics, Elsevier. From 1996 to 2008 she was Principal Editor of a book series Current Research in the Semantics/Pragmatics Interface, Elsevier. She is also a member of the Committee of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain.
