About Stellan Petersson

I am employed as a lecturer in Swedish language. I received my PhD degree in theoretical philosophy in 2019.

Research

Dissertation

In my dissertation in theoretical philosophy, I discuss context dependence and semantics, or more specifically, indexicalism and truth-conditional pragmatics within the philosophy of language. In contrast to what has previously been assumed, I claim that these ideas about context dependence are empirically equivalent. This becomes evident, when the two positions are formulated precisely in terms of model-theoretic semantics.

Lexicography

My research also concerns controversial words in Swedish. These inquiries focus on questions about context dependence and emotive meaning, and are related to practical lexicographical work on Swedish monolingual dictionaries.

Teaching

My teaching during 2019 and 2020 mostly concerns semantics, sociolinguistics and supervision of academic essays.
