Research Interests

(1) Language and literature in Hong Kong and Macao; (2) the history and culture of the languages of South China. Research area (1) not only includes Cantonese as a phonetic language but also considers comprehensively various languages and general linguistic activities in the urban societies of Hong Kong and Macao, often with an emphasis on written language and historical research. With regard to (2), my interests lie in analysing data from fieldwork and from literature on the history of language.
