About Me


I am an associate professor in the department of English Language and Literature at Sungshin Women's University. I was awarded my Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2007. My research interest is in the structural encoding of speech, and the interplay of factors from phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, and discourse structure that govern speech forms. Prosody is an organizational structure of spoken language, and therefore it serves the best basis on which I conduct my research. My research focuses on the prosodic structures of speech utterances, based on the analysis of large corpora of broadcast news and spontaneous speech.
