Anna Szabolcsi is a linguist whose research has focused on semantics, syntax, and the syntax-semantics interface. She was born and educated in Hungary. She has been a research fellow at the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, professor at UCLA, and is currently professor at New York University.
Szabolcsi was one of the first to propose the determiner phrase hypothesis and alongside Mark Steedman and others initiated research in combinatory categorial grammar. More recently she has worked on verbal complexes, quantification, islands, polarity, and overt subjects in infinitival complements.
