Hello, my friend! I’m Minqi Liu, a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics at UCLA. I’m also a member of UCLA Language Acquisition Lab. Please click on my CV if you’d like to know more about me.
Research Interests: syntax, L1 acquisition, Mandarin Chinese
- A paper co-authored by me, Nina Hyams, and Victoria Mateu is to be published in the inaugural issue of Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics, entitled The Syntax and Acquisition of Mandarin Sluice-like Constructions.
- I filed my MA thesis and got a M.A. degree in linguistics (advisor: Nina Hyams) in Fall 2019.
- I gave a talk in the 14th Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition conference (GALA 14) on Sluicing in Child Mandarin: Effects of Lexical Ambiguity and a talk in the 44th Boston University Conference on Language Development (BUCLD 44) on Late Intervention Effects in Mandarin Sluice Acquisition. Both are joint work with Nina Hyams and Victoria Mateu.
- I went to Crete, Greece for the wonderful CreteLing summer school in July, 2019 (see their website to apply for Creteling 2020).
