Welcome to the website of the Research Centre for Cantonese!

The Centre is committed to conducting and actively supporting scholarly research on Cantonese language and linguistics, capitalizing on the existing strengths of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is dedicated to creating an active research platform whereby various ideas and thoughts can be brought together within an innovative theoretical perspective to develop and pursue a promising research direction that contributes towards theory building in Cantonese linguistics.

We sincerely look forward to working closely with like-minded scholars and researchers to promote the theoretical study of Cantonese, with particular reference to exploring innovative approaches for Chinese dialectal grammar.
