Recent picture: Lost at Grass Island (Tap Mun).
I am interested in looking at formal aspects of meaning that are also cognitively significant, which entails attention to two directions of study:Interested themes: Montague semantics and its later developments, Inferential pragmatics[esp. relevance theory] and its formal developments, formal semantic and pragmatic analysis of Chinese, rhetoric studies as extensions of semantics and pragmaticsMany recent activities in teaching and research are documented in my WordPress and Sina Blogs. Please access through Sitebar: 0000-0001. [More recent updates are only done in Sina.]I have been working on a corpus of Chinese rhetoric, together with hundreds of MA students taking my subject on modern rhetoric, who contribute data in the form of analyzed new examples in their assignments. The corpus will be made accessible to registered users in a few months' time. Please write to me if you are interested.
