Teaching

Most of my teaching to date has been in the areas of theoretical and historical linguistics. Below is a brief overview of the courses I’ve taught.


UNIVERSITY OF CYPRUS

Slides will be uploaded after each lecture.

  • Lecture 1: Introduction & Core concepts.
  • Lecture 2: Executing the Fregean Programme.
  • Lecture 3: Predication, modification, presupposition
  • Lecture 4: Relatives, variables, binding
  • Lecture 5: Quantification I
  • Lecture 6: Quantification II.

Note: The slides are based almost exclusively on Heim & Kratzer (1998).

  • Part 1.
  • Part 2. Using Lambda Calculator, solve the exercises from H&K, Chap. 4.
  • Part 3.

Note: Many of the problems used in the problem sets were taken from the teaching material my colleagues wrote and whose authorship I cite here: Angelika Kratzer, Maribel Romero, Lucas Champollion, Cornelia Endriss, and Liz Coppock.
