Orin Percus is professor of linguistics at the University of Nantes and member of the Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes (UMR 6310). He was previously employed at the Università ‘Vita-Salute’ San Raffaele, Milan. His research has touched on a wide variety of topics in semantics; he is probably best known for his work on the compositional semantics of constructions associated with intensionality.

Zoltán Gendler Szabó is the John J. Saden Professor of Philosophy at Yale University. As an undergraduate, he studied mathematics and philosophy at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest and he received his PhD in philosophy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to his current appointment, he taught at Cornell University. Szabó’s work focuses on the intersection of philosophy of language and metaphysics. He has published on a wide variety of topics, including the semantics of descriptions, modals, tense, aspect and the expression of mental attitudes, on the role that conversational context plays in interpretation, and on the limits of systematicity in assigning meanings to complex linguistic expressions. His main current project explores the way in which natural languages incline us towards certain metaphysical beliefs over others.
