I'm looking for some consultation and tutoring from a PhD in linguistics who can help point me in the right direction in the literature and guide my self-studies. There's no project or "job" here really I'm just an amateur with an interest in the topic. I'm particularly interested in the underpinnings of communication theory and how language use implicitly relies on "strategic" or "iterative" thinking and modeling of the interlocutor's mind: in a dialog between two smart, synced individuals, the meaning of person A's utterance is informed not just by what A is thinking, and what person A thinks person B is thinking, but also what person A thinks person B thinks person A is thinking. And so on. I've also reached out to an Econ PhD with a focus in game theory to help me research this from the opposite side, but main interest sits in the linguistic/comm theory domain.
