Hi, I am Hongchen. Welcome to my personal website.
This is my fourth year in the beloved Linguistics Department at the beautiful Stony Brook University. Currently, I’m a Ph.D. Candidate and working on my thesis under the supervision of Professor Richard Larson. I’m also working as a Teaching Assistant for Intro to Semantics and Pragmatics in Summer 2019 for the NY-St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition and Culture (NYI).
I hold an M.A. degree in Chinese Linguistics from Peking University, a B.A. degree in Chinese Language and Literature from Jilin University and a Chinese Teacher Certificate from Teachers College, Columbia University.
I am interested in Syntax, Semantics, Second Language Acquisition and Computational Linguistics. The languages of investigation are East Asian languages, primarily Mandarin Chinese. My current projects include quantifier scope, polarity item renhe ‘any’, the processing of classifier composition, the syntax-prosody interface of wh-scope, and
My office is located in room S – 204 of the Social Behavioral Science building on Stony Brook Campus in Long Island. If you want to discuss something about linguistics or Chinese languages, feel free to drop by my office. You may reach me at any time via email.
