About the Author
Daniel Gutzmann is a Visiting Professor in German linguistics at the University of Cologne. His research interests are semantics, pragmatics, and philosophy of language. He has worked and published on the semantics of various kinds of non-truth conditional meaning, including expressives, modal particles, personal datives, sentence mood, and verum focus, as well as on the pragmatics of quotation. He is the co-editor of Beyond Expressives: Explorations inUse-Conditional Meaning (Brill, 2013) and of Approaches to Meaning: Composition, Values, and Interpretation (Brill, 2014). Daniel Gutzmann won the 2014 Humboldt award of the DGfS (German Linguistics Society) for the best dissertation on which his book is based. His theory integrates meaning and use-conditions of utterances in a unifying framework, and the high accessibility of his monograph was honourably mentioned by the jury.
