Dr Ash Asudeh

BA, MPhil, PhD Hugh Price Fellow in Linguistics, University Lecturer in Linguistics ash.asudeh@jesus.ox.ac.uk

Academic Background

I studied for my undergraduate degree, a BA in Cognitive Science, at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. I then attended the University of Edinburgh on a Commonwealth Scholarship. I completed an MPhil there, in the Centre for Cognitive Science, which is now part of the School of Informatics. I obtained a PhD in Linguistics from Stanford University in 2004. I lectured for two years at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, before joining the Institute of Cognitive Science and the School of Linguistics and Language Studies at Carleton University in 2006. In 2010, I won the Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research and Innovation of the Province of Ontario. I joined the University of Oxford and Jesus College in 2011. My book, The Logic of Pronominal Resumption, was published in 2012 by Oxford University Press.

Undergraduate Teaching

Semantics, pragmatics, some psycholinguistics for general prelims.

Postgraduate Teaching

Formal foundations of linguistics, semantics, pragmatics.

Research Interests

Semantics, pragmatics, syntax, cognitive science, language and logic, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics

The tradition of linguistics that I work in seeks to properly characterize knowledge of language. Language is viewed as a complex mental capacity that can be profitably studied as a formal system. Given the complexity of language, a promising approach is to break the overall system down into smaller sub-systems and to study properties of these systems and interactions between systems.

Other Interests

Hobbies: Reading, film, music, travel.
