Current research
At various stages of completion or review, I have a paper on grammaticalized evidentials and the dispensability of speech acts like assertion, a paper on the pragmatics of hedging, a paper on theistic apophaticism, a paper on knowledge as the aim of inquiry, and a co-edited volume on unstructured theories of propositional content (with Dirk Kindermann and Andy Egan).
