MECORE: A cross-linguistic investigation of meaning-driven combinatorial restrictions in clausal embedding

© CL Photographs

MECORE is a research project on formal semantics, jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

The project will pursue an integrated approach to investigate the relation and interaction between semantic properties of clause-embedding predicates and their selectional properties, by combining cross-linguistic data-collection and experimental semantics with the development of unified theoretical analyses. Please see About for details of the project. 

It runs concurrently in Edinburgh (co-Principal Investigator: Dr Wataru Uegaki + 1 Postdoctoral Researcher), Konstanz (co-Principal Investigator: Prof Maribel Romero + 1 Postdoctoral Researcher), and Amsterdam (Co-Investigator: Dr Floris Roelofsen).

The project is based on a research collaboration network “Searching for semantic universals in the modal and attitudinal domains”, funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO).
