Suzi Lima is an assistant professor in the department of linguistics at the University of Toronto. 

Lima’s work integrates theoretical and experimental research in the field of cross-linguistic semantics. Lima investigate how semantic representations in different domains are encoded in linguistic constructions, and how this encoding varies across languages. 

Most of Lima’s research has focused on the conceptual domain of counting and measuring. Lima’s research on this domain investigates how languages encode the distinction between objects and substances in their lexicon and in their grammar, and how operations of counting objects and measuring substances are expressed linguistically.
