About: 

Napoleon Katsos is interested in how experimental research in language acquisition and processing can inform theoretical linguistic inquiry and vice versa. His particular focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, especially implicature, presupposition and quantification. Together with colleagues, he has been awarded grants by the AHRC, the British Academy, the ESRC, and other funding bodies to work on aspects of experimental pragmatics with typically- and atypically-developing children and adults.

Napoleon is also interested in bilingualism, and is a founder member of the Cambridge Bilingualism Network.
