University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee
Department of Linguistics
I studied linguistics at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (MA 2005) and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (PhD 2011). At the present I work as assistant professor in linguistics at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
My research interests include (i) the relationship between hierarchical structure and linear word order, (ii) the syntax and semantics of classifier phrases, (iii) the pragmatics of yes/no questions, and (iv) the computation of scalar implicatures. I am a native of Hà Nội, Việt Nam, where I go by the name of “Trịnh Hữu Tuệ.” Here are my CV and my academia.edu page.
