I am a linguist and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, with a specialization in the morphosyntax of Indonesian languages, particularly colloquial Indonesian and Madurese. I am a faculty lecturer in Critical Writing in the Disciplines at Penn. My writing seminars are organized around topics in linguistics (see Teaching page for current and upcoming classes).
Broadly speaking, my research interests include syntax and its interfaces; syntactic variability; best practices in fieldwork, particularly in under-represented languages; writing about linguistics/language; and collaborative research models. My dissertation, Optional Elements in Indonesian Morphosyntax, investigates the interaction of syntactic constraints with surface optionality, with a focus on functional elements that are variable for a single speaker.
Recently I have been writing about previously-unreported patterns of wh-agreement; alternations in complementizers; and P-drop (or silent prepositions). For the most recent version of my CV, please contact me by email at: jeoungh (at) sas.upenn.edu.
