Stony Brook University
Linguistics Ph.D. Candidate

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 and a recitation instructor for LIN 311 Syntax in the Spring semester of 2019 at Stony Brook University.

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 pre-nomimal Mandarin relative clauses.

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.
