  • About

    San Duanmu’s current research covers three areas: a book project on features, using two large phoneme inventory databases, to be published by Oxford University Press; a survey-based study of changing preferences of language choices in China, as a result of rapid socio-economic transformation in the country; and quantitative studies of some phonological and lexical problems in Chinese.

    He has recently taught Introduction to Language, Sound Patterns, Phonology, Advanced Phonology, a first-year seminar on English Pronunciation, and an advanced seminar on Corpus Linguistics.

    Professor Duanmu has been a member of the Executive Committee of the International Association of Chinese Linguists and of the Editorial Board of the Journal of East Asian Linguistics.  He currently serves on the editorial boards of the journals Contemporary Linguistics (Chinese Academy of Social Sciences), Korean Journal of Chinese Language and Literature (Seoul), and Studies in Chinese Linguistics (Chinese University of Hong Kong).
