Charlotte Sant


Job description

I am a PhD Candidate in Theoretical Linguistics at CASTLFish at the Department of Language and Culture. I am interested in the interface between syntax and semantics, i.e. how words, phrases and sentences work and how meaning is composed in natural languages, with a main focus on English and Scandinavian languages. My project is about adjectives and how they behave semantically, especially 'weird' adjectives like frequency and evaluative adjectives, and how they interact with events, kinds and genericity. I have an MA in Comparative Syntax and Semantics from the University of York, under main supervisor George Tsoulas. I also have a BA in English Language and Literature from NTNU.

I am a member of CASTLFish, Øy(e)Lab (at NTNU) and AcqVA (UiT & NTNU). Previously I have been involved in the Language and Gene Lineage (LanGeLin) project at the University of York.
