I’m particularly interested in how we talk about what happens next. So I spend much of my time thinking about:
I take the perspective that meaning is contributed both at a generative, syntax-visible, semantic level (i.e., logical form), as well as at a non-generative, conceptual level, and that the division of labor between these levels is testable using the methods of model-theoretic compositional semantics, syntactic theory, and cognitive psychology.
I coordinate the OASIS international research network (2018-2021): Ontology As Structured by the Interfaces with Semantics and am involved with the DFG project Composing events in Romance causative constructions and the semantics of causation.
Sometimes people ask how to pronounce my last name. It’s pronounced /koʊpli/. Though in Boston I answer to /kɑpli/ and in Paris to /kople/.
Write to me at my given name dot the name whose pronunciation is above and cnrs.fr.
