Paul Law studied linguistics at UCLA and MIT. He came to the City University of Hong Kong in 2008, after three years at the Université du Quebec à Montréal, Canada and more than ten years of research at Zentrum für Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft and teaching at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany. He has worked on a wide variety of languages including the less familiar languages Haitian Creole, Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Malagasy, Tagalog and the Formosan language Tsou. His current research concentrates on the syntax of Tense in Mandarin Chinese, yes/no questions in the Wuhu dialect, agreement and resumptive pronouns in Breton as well as reconstruction effects.
