Anastasia Giannakidou studies linguistic meaning from formal semantic and philosophical perspectives. With background in ancient Greek philology and philosophy of language, she is interested in how meaning is represented in language, and what the relationship is between meaning and syntactic form. While her main focus is the Greek language, Giannakidou has also worked on Dutch, French, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, and Basque. She is a specialist on negation, polarity, definiteness, temporal semantics, and modality, and has written more than 150 articles and book chapters on topics in these areas. In her most recent book, Truth and Veridicality in Grammar and Thought (2021), Giannakidou and co-author Alda Mari develop a linguistic and philosophical framework for how judgments about truth are formed by speakers, and how beliefs and other attitudes differ from knowledge. She is the Frank J. McLoraine Professor in the Department of Linguistics, Director of the Center for Hellenic Studies, and Co-Director of the Center for Gesture, Sign, and Language at the University of Chicago.
