After she obtained her PhD at Groningen University in 1991, Henriette de Swart taught at Groningen University and Stanford University until she became a full professor in French linguistics and semantics at Utrecht University in 1997. Her research focuses on cross-linguistic variation in meaning. She published journal articles and books/book chapters on tense and aspect, negation, bare nominals and indefinites, as well as an introductory textbook in semantics. She also investigated the role of semantics in language evolution, and was closely involved in the development of bidirectional optimality theory. She has been an editor of Natural Language and Linguistic Theory since 2015. She teaches courses in the bachelor programme French language and culture, the bachelor programme Artificial Intelligence, and the research master Linguistics, which she is currently coordinating. She has been director of the national graduate school in linguistics (LOT) and the director of the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics (LOT). In 2013, she was elected as a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences (KNAW).

Project:
Time in Translation: a semantics of the perfect
01.07.2017 to 31.08.2021
General project description 

The aim of the programme is to analyze the meaning of the perfect. This sounds easy, but it is not. Verb forms like English ‘have left’ and their counterparts in other languages combine reference to the past and the present, in ways that have escaped linguistic theory. To get out of the doldrums, we need data that enable cross-linguistic comparison without pre-conceptualized meanings. We obtain those data through a new methodology for multilingual corpus research that we dub ‘Translation Mining’. As the perfect interacts with the grammatical categories past and present, its analysis requires a competition-based approach. Our corpus data show the alternations, so we improve on current analyses by developing a micro-typology that is grounded in translation equivalences between English, Dutch, German, French and Spanish. Perfects vary not only in sentence-level meanings, but also in narrative and non-narrative discourse use. As a theory of temporal structure in non-narrative discourse is lacking, we build a temporal extension of commitment-based dynamic theory to analyze the corpus data of perfects in context. The predictions of a corpus-based analysis need to be checked on an additional corpus and squared with native speakers, so we carry out a corpus experiment and native speaker surveys. The outcome of the programme will be (1) a semantic map of the perfect, (2) a dynamic account of its non-narrative nature, and (3) a unified truth-conditional and dynamic semantics of its sentence-level and discourse-level meanings. The results will be made available for translators, computational linguists and typologists.

Project:
Weak Referentiality: Bare nominals at the interface of lexicon, syntax and semantics 01.09.2008 to 01.09.2012
General project description

Articles and bare nominals are often in complementary distribution. English tolerates bare plurals and bare mass nouns (buy apples, drink milk), but not generally bare count singulars (*buy book), except in special configurations like at school, in bed, without anchor), in which the bare nominal is not so much to refer to a concrete individual, but rather to describe properties, types, conventional situations, etc. The use of articles in such weakly referential constructions is often variable within one language (be chair of the committee vs. be a professor), as well as across languages (be a professor - être professeur). The project works out three complementary questions in relation to the distribution and meaning of weakly referential expressions:


(i) weakly referential nominals: lexicon and constructions. Research on classes of nouns and weakly referential configurations.


(ii) Weakly referential nominals: meaning and comprehension. Online/offline experimental investigation on the way in which weakly referential nominals are understood.


(iii) Cross-linguistic distribution of weakly referential nominals. Corpus research on different languages and parallel corpora (English, Romance, Germanic) provides the data for projects (i) and (ii), as well as the generalizations that support information extraction, computer aided translation and natural language processing.

Project:
Conflicts in Interpretation 30.07.2002 to 31.12.2006
General project description

This project was a collaboration between the universities of Groningen (Petra Hendriks), Nijmegen (Helen de Hoop) and Utrecht (Henriette de Swart). It aimed at the further development of semantic research in Optimality Theory, as initiated by Hendriks & de Hoop (2001) and de Hoop & de Swart (2000). It ultimately developed into a broad range of applications of bidirectional Optimality Theory from lexicon to discourse, with implications for the syntax-semantics interface, typology, language acquisition and a new perspective on language in higher cogntion in Hendriks, Kramer, de Hoop, de Swart & Zwarts (2010).
