Dr. TSAI Cheng Yu (蔡承佑)
I am from Taiwan and joined City University of Hong Kong in August 2016 as Assistant Professor. A theoretical linguist by training, I have mainly worked on the syntax and semantics of quantification in Mandarin and am particularly interested in the meaning of non-interrogative wh-phrases, quantifiers and quantificational particles. At CityU I have offered courses at all levels from undergraduate to PhD.
