I'm currently a PhD candidate working in the Linguistik/Germanistik department of the University of Stuttgart, under the supervision of Professor Dr. Daniel Hole. My dissertation, On shi and de in Mandarin: clefts and beyond, provides a comprehensive comparison between the Mandarin shi...de cleft and bare-shi cleft through an analysis of their syntax, semantics and pragmatics, combining both theoretical and experimental perspectives.
