Professor Ruth Kempson

Emeritus Professor of Linguistics


Professor Kempson has been instrumental in the development of Dynamic Syntax, a grammar formalism which directly reflects the dynamics of how language is processed in context. She currently heads a joint project with Dr Wilfried Meyer-Viol on The Dynamics of Conversational Dialogue (DynDial) which is run in collaboration with Patrick Healey of Queen Mary College London.
