In doxastic logic, the framework of possible worlds is used to represent the beliefs of subjects, and in formal semantic this same framework is used to represent the meaning of sentences in natural languages. In both settings, the central notions of belief and meaning are themselves theoretical notions. The aim of Johannes Marti’s research is to connect these notions of belief and meaning with the more empirical notion of linguistic behaviour by giving a formal account of how possible world models for belief and meaning can be used to interpret linguistic behaviour.
