Viva for Julia!

Posted on July 5, 2016 by

LEL’s Julia Kolkmann, the subject of many a Manchet post, has yesterday successfully defended her PhD dissertation!

Julia’s PhD was on the semantics and pragmatics of attributive possession in English, asking how interlocutors overcome the various problems posed by semantically underspecified but referentially determinative noun phrases in communication.

Manchet congratulates Julia and wishes her a long and prosperous career in the field!
