I'll be presenting "Color Adjectives, Standards, and Thresholds: An Experimental Investigation" (written with Emmanuel Chemla) at the Workshop on Gradability, Scale Structure and Vagueness: Experimental Perspectives in Madrid, May 28-29. 

"Contemporary Ordinary Language Philosophy" has been published in Philosophy Compass.

Emma Borg and I have been awarded an AHRC Research Network Scheme grant with Peking University on the topic of "Pervasive Context Sensitivity in Natural Language". 

Emma Borg and I are editing a special issue of Ratio on the topic of experimental approaches to the study of meaning, including papers by John Collins, Bart Geurts and Paula Rubio-Fernández, Napoleon Katsos and Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigogato, and Kristen Syrett, to be published at the end of 2015. 

I had some impact outside academia. 

"Just What Is It That Makes Travis's Examples So Different, So Appealing?", is forthcoming in J. Collins, A. Davies and T. Dobler (eds.), Themes from Charles Travis: On Language, Thought and Perception (OUP).
