    Everyone is cordially invited to attend the public defence of the dissertation of Matthijs Westera, with reception afterwards.

    In his dissertation he develops a rationality-based account of two central linguistic/cognitive phenomena: exhaustivity (that we tend to assume that what isn't explicitly mentioned is false) and intonational meaning (that we use rises and falls in our speech to indicate compliance with certain standards for rational conversation).
