     Angelika Port


    I am a PhD student (promovendus) at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam. My supervisor is Maria Aloni.


    I'm working on marked indefinites, especially on so called epistemic indefinites. My main interests are the semantics and pragmatics of indefinites, the use and functions of discourse particles and in general modality. Furthermore, I'm interested in diachronic studies and the development of certain expressions over time.


    Since February 2013, I'm a lecturer for the course Logic, Information flow and argumentation, at the Amsterdam University College (AUC).
