Yasutada Sudo

This is me in Banja Luka (August 2018)

I'm an Associate Professor (October 2018-) at the Department of Linguistics, University College London (UCL). My research is about theoretical linguistics, mainly semantics, pragmatics, and syntax. I'm also interested in psycholinguistics.

I am an Associate Editor for Journal of Semantics (June 2016-). I was an Editor for the Squibs and Discussion section of Linguistic Inquiry (October 2013-November 2017).

Regular courses at UCL

This is me with my niece in Tokyo (January 2017)

Introduction to Semantics and Pragmatics A

PLIN0001 (formerly PLIN1001). Co-taught with Nathan Klinedinst. This course is an introduction to the study of meaning, intended for first-year BA students in Linguistics. We introduce Set Theory and Propositional Logic as tools to analyse the semantics and pragmatics of predicates and sentential connectives.

Semantic Theory

PLIN0009 (formerly PLIN2001). This course is an introduction to formal semantics, focusing especially on compositionality and quantification. It also introduces formal tools such as Set Theory, functions, lambda-calculus, and Predicate Logic. Intended for second-year BA students in Linguistics.

Advanced Semantic Theory

PLIN0020 (formerly PLIN3004/PLING218). Since Academic Year 2017-18, this course discusses advanced topics in formal semantics. From Year 2019-20, it will be 'research-based', meaning students will be asked to What is now taught in Semantic Theory used to be taught in this course. Mainly intended for final-year BA students and advanced MA students.

Semantics Research Seminar

PLIN0056 (formerly PLING228). Co-taught with Nathan Klinedinst and Daniel Rothschild (+ guest lecturers). This is a graduate-level seminar course on semantics and philosophy of language. Each year we pick a topic and read and discuss classic work and recent research on it.

  • Autumn 2018-19: Attitudes
  • Spring 2017-18: Presupposition
  • Spring 2016-17: Question Semantics
  • Spring 2015-16: Question Semantics
  • Spring 2014-15: Dynamic Semantics, Truth-maker Semantics
  • Spring 2013-14: De re/de dicto

Advanced Semantic Theory B

PLIN3005/PLING229. This course is not offered at the moment, but used to cover advanced topics in semantics. The lecture notes from Spring 2015-16 are available here. That year, I taught degree semantics and plurality.

2018

Ellipsis, Binding, and Logical Form : with Patrick Elliott

Eastern Generative Grammar 2018, in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Boznia and Herzegovina.

In this seminar, we delve into the semantics of elliptical constructions, by focusing on the interaction between ellipsis and binding – a topic that has been the focus of intensive research since Sag’s (1976) pioneering dissertation. In the first part of the class, we will introduce a number of classical ellipsis/binding puzzles, and the debate surrounding their analysis: the strict/sloppy ambiguity, MaxElide, and Dahl’s puzzle. In the second part of the class, we will briefly introduce dynamic semantics, and argue that static conceptions of binding are insufficient for analysing certain interactions between binding and ellipsis. Ultimately, we will suggest that once one shifts to a dynamic perspective, ellipsis can itself be analysed as a kind of binding.

The Exhaustivity Operator: Current Issues and Perspectives : with Daniele Panizza

Eastern Generative Grammar 2018, in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Boznia and Herzegovina.

In this course we will review recent theoretical developments concerning the exhaustivity-operator (Exh). We will start with the basics (focus, scalar implicature and problems of alternatives), and move on to more advanced topics, such as economy conditions on the distribution of Exh, polarity sensitivity, etc.

Lectures on the Syntax, Semantics, and Morphology of Number : with Andrew Nevins

12-14 December, 2017, Masaryk University, Brno. Funded by Erasmus+.

  • Lecture 1: Unmarked plurals [ handout ]
  • Webinar: Countable nouns and classifiers in Japanese (and beyond) [ slides ]

Lectures on the Syntax, Semantics, and Morphology of Gender : with Andrew Nevins

1-3 June, 2016, at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

In this course we will explore current theoretical issues regarding gender marking in natural languages. Gender is a hotly debated topic in the literature of morphology, syntax, and semantics, as well as their interfaces. We will discuss various theoretical debates, drawing data from a number of languages, including Greek. There will be five lectures:

  • Lecture 1: Introduction [ Slides ]
  • Lecture 2: The Semantics of Gender on Nouns [ Slides ]
  • Lecture 3: Nominal Ellipsis of Gendered Nouns [ Slides ]
  • Lectures 4&5: Gender on Participles

2015

The Semantics of Perspective Sensitivity : with Lisa Bylinina & Eric McCready

ESSLLI 2015, August 10-14, 2015, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.

Many expressions in natural language (e.g. left, interesting) are 'perspective-sensitive' in the sense that their meanings nontrivially refer to the perspectives under which they are used. While the semantics of such perspective sensitive items (PSIs) garnered some attention in the 70-80s, the recent literature focuses more on specific subsets of them (e.g. predicates of personal taste, perspective sensitive anaphora, evidentials) and discussion on similarities and differences among PSIs is scarce. Furthermore, despite the recent developments in the study of context sensitivity, especially the semantics of indexical expressions and de se attitude, connections to perspective sensitivity have rarely been made. The purpose of this course is to bring together the views offered by these different trends in the recent literature, aiming at giving a better empirical landscape of PSIs and developing a formal theory of perspective sensitivity in relation to context sensitivity.
