Hello! This is Yang. I am a PhD candidate at DTAL, University of Cambridge, funded by an External Research Studentship from Trinity College, Cambridge. My PhD research centres on tone sandhi, i.e. categorical tonal alternation in connected speech, in Fuzhou Min Chinese. I investigate the variability of Fuzhou tone sandhi along acoustic, productivity and social dimensions.
I have additional interests in cross-linguistic prosody, variation and change in Mandarin dialects, variaties of English, and statistical inference. See Research for details of my PhD and collaborative projects. See Papers for outputs stemming from these interests. See Scripts & Stats for Praat scripts and stats tips.
