Dr. Roberto B. Sileo

Research Associate

Roberto’s research interests lie in semantics, pragmatics, and philosophy of language. He has previously worked on the use and interpretation of metaphorical and descriptive/expressive language in every day conversational exchanges. Following Jaszczolt’s Default Semantics, he looked into well-differentiated dimensions of meaning and how they can convey, in context, propositional and truth-evaluable content.
