In line with the Hong Kong government’s language policy goal of biliteracy and trilingualism, we have been conducting high-quality research on the functioning of human language as a semiotic, meaning-making system, with particular reference to language learning and use in multilingual settings. We welcome doctoral-level projects that help advance our understanding of these and other related research areas, especially projects which call for scientific, inter-disciplinary inquiry that entails the use of multiple methods.
