Zheng Shen

Beginning in May 2018, I am a Postdoc researcher for the DFG funded project A General Theory of Multivaluation (PIs: Katharina Hartmann, Peter W. Smith) at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany.

Here is my full CV. (updated Nov. 2018)

Broadly, my research interests lie in syntax and its interfaces with semantics and morphology. My dissertation Feature Arithmetic in the Nominal Domain looks into multi-valuation, where one probe agreeing with multiple goals, thus receiving multiple values. I discuss cross-linguistic agreement patterns in nominal right node raising constructions and compare them with other cases of multi-valuation.

My other project investigates degree expressions and the structural restrictions on their interpretations. This line of research has implications for the structure and semantics of nominal phrases, as well as syntactic phenomena such as fragment answers. I have also worked on the acquisition of superlative expressions with Lyn Tieu.

I started Ling Alert.
