My current research studies include fictive motion sentence processing and the language characteristics of patients with autism. Fictive motion sentences are one of figurative language using motion verbs to describe statistic scenery or condition. I would like to figure out in what constraints people use fictive motion expressions and what factors influence people understand fictive motion.

Second, I have started to look at language features of children with autism, including their word order, semantics and pragmatics. In addition, I am particularly interested in understanding how they deal with non-literal language. I want to know which types of non-literal language are more difficult to understand, such as irony, metaphor, fictive motion sentences, etc.


If you are interested in my research and want to explore the related issues in cognitive linguistics, please join my lab "Language and Cognition" and talk to me.
