Professor Daniel Rothschild
Professor of Philosophy of Language at University College London
Quondam Fellow since 2020
My research is in natural language semantics and pragmatics. In particular, I study presupposition, the logical connectives, definite descriptions and pronouns, epistemic language, questions, context-sensitivity, and game-theoretic accounts of meaning.
