Hi! I am Chaoyi Chen!


I’m a second-year Ph.D. student in the Rutgers Department of Linguistics.
I am interested in Syntax, Semantics, and Syntax-Morphology interface.
Language-wise, I specialize in Mandarin Chinese and Fuzhou Chinese (a prestige variety of the Eastern Min Branch of Min Chinese).
I am working with Dr.Yimei Xiang on my first qualifying paper about the concessive reading of scalar particles.
