This book uses mathematical models of language to explain why there are certain gaps in language: things that we might expect to be able to say but can't. Lucas Champollion offers a theory that unifies the concepts of aspect, plural and mass reference, measurement, and distributivity, to account for these gaps.
Lucas Champollion is Assistant Professor of Linguistics at New York University. He holds a Ph.D. in Linguistics (2010) and a M.Sc. in Computer and Information Science (2007), both from the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining New York University in 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Eberhard Karls Universitat Tubingen in Germany. His work has appeared in journals such as Theoretical Linguistics, Linguistics and Philosophy, Journal of Semantics and Semantics and Pragmatics.
