Research interest

My research mainly focuses on the productivity of Mandarin compounds with theoretical, computational and experimental methods. Currently I’m working on the productivity of polar adjectives in Mandarin Adjective and Noun compounds with priming experiments under semantic markedness theory and with Linear Discriminative Learning model.
