Jeremy Kuhn is a CNRS researcher (chargĂ© de recherche) and a member of the LINGUAE team at the Institut Jean Nicod. Kuhn studies natural language semantics, with a particular focus on sign language data (including French Sign Language and American Sign Language). His work investigates the unique properties of the sign language modality (e.g., space, iconicity) in order to inform general questions regarding semantic composition, as well as the cognitive origins of abstract semantic categories in natural language.
