Pronouns: she/her/hers


I'm a fourth-year graduate student in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA

My main research interests lie in phonology, especially its interface with morphology. I use experimental and computational methods to understand how people acquire and represent (morpho)phonological knowledge. I'm also interested in Semitic languages and Arabic in particular.

About me: 

My name in Chinese is Xi Xu (许希), but I go by Lily because of the difficulty of guessing how the x is pronounced and a minimal word restriction that is at least active in my idiolect. My last name can be pronounced as [ɕỳ] (true to Mandarin) or [ʃu] (more anglicized), but is not pronounced [zu] (prithee) or [xu].
