This page is for links to my research, both conference presentations and publications. (Information from the defunct server will be added here later.)
My research area is Chinese linguistics, with focus on phonetics (particularly with respect to prosody-discourse interface), phonology (synchronic and diachronic), and dialectology. Recent publications include collaborative works on the Mandarin and Cantonese ToBI systems of prosodic transcripton, studies pertaining to humor, language and gender, as well as pragmatic functions of sentence-final particles. Research interest and publications also extend to studies on written Cantonese, Chinese regional operas (with their different dialect bases), and Chinese computing, including corpus linguistics and issues concerning concordancing of Chinese e-texts.
