Home > Introduction

Seongha Rhee is a professor of applied linguistics at the Department of English Linguistics, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Korea. I received the Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin in 1996 under the supervision of Professor Dr. Manfred Krifka, now at Humboldt University, Berlin. I taught and researched at Stanford University as a 2003-2004 Fulbright lecturer. My primary research interests are, among others, to identify cognitive and discursive mechanisms that enable language change from the crosslinguistic and typological perspectives; to analyze cultural influence that shapes linguistic structure and triggers language change; and to investigate the socio-cultural, rhetorical, discursive aspects that influence language learning.
