 Hi, I am Hongchen. Welcome to my personal website.

I just finished my doctoral thesis and graduated with a Ph.D. degree from the beloved Linguistics Department, Stony Brook University in December 2019. My thesis is titled “Quantifier Scope in Mandarin” and it was done under the supervision of my Ph.D. advisor Professor Richard Larson.

Currently I am on the job market, actively looking for Linguistics related jobs.  Please feel free to reach out  via email at any time if you have any job recommendations. Much appreciated!

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-nominal Mandarin relative clauses.

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.
