Hi, I'm Jungu.

A linguistics student

...with focus on syntax, phonology and fieldworks.
I am currently working as a junior research assistant at the Chinese University of Hong Kong

About

I am currently a learning/working linguist at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).

I am interested in investigating the mapping between phonology and syntax; being able to find a link between the two is what I believe would be the concrete evidence supporting the existence of a more abstract system of human language that is shared amongst people.


Fields and subjects of interest

  • Syntax
  • Phonology
  • Fieldworks
  • DOMs and PNIs
  • Tamang VP Ellipsis
  • Korean NPI licensing
  • Korean wh-question and prosody
not the most accurate representation of me :D

The works here are products of two of my hobbies:
Graphic design, and photography.

Is it a hellish climb? YES!!!

Blue Rose

Bluu

Blue Rose

It's not even blue, though

A leftover from my undergrad project of making an anthology book. If you might've noticed, yes the color scheme for this site is based on this design. I wouldn't say it's my favorite, but the color contrast is definitely one of my favorite.

Other variations

of monsters and men

owls

of monsters and men

The moon-eyed owl, stares.

Perhaps edgy, but my favorite. A random idea of putting the moon in a owl's eye gone completely right.

Other variations
(under construction)

inter-isolation

yokan

inter-isolation

Are we alone together,
or are we together alone?

The design that was picked for the anthology project. I was fascinated with paper cut-outs (I still am kind of) and this was one of the better realization of my gravitations towards it.

This site was built by myself, so the whole site is quite unfinished.
The good part is that, if there's something I can fix, I can!
