Profile


Dr Lisa Lim graduated from the National University of Singapore with a First Class Honours in English Language, and went on to do her PhD in phonetics at the University of Reading. She returned to the Department of English Language and Literature of the National University of Singapore in 1996 as Lecturer/ Assistant Professor. In 2004 she exchanged balmy breezes for North Sea winds to be at the University of Amsterdam, for a year at the Institute of Phonetic Sciences, and then as senior lecturer and researcher at the Department of English and the Amsterdam Centre for Language and Communication (ACLC).

2009 saw her returning, thrilled, to tropical Asia, where she joined the School of English at the University of Hong Kong. As Coordinator of the Language and Communication (L&C) programme, she revamped L&C’s profile, turning its lens onto today’s multilingual, globalised world, and introducing in the programme learning experiences such as fieldwork in local minority communities, field trips, a vibrant internship scheme, and knowledge exchange with the community. She is also Chair of the Departmental Research Postgraduate Committee.

Her current research interests – reflected in her teaching and supervision – centre around: New Englishes, especially postcolonial Asian varieties in multilingual ecologies, such as Singapore and Hong Kong, with particular interest in contact dynamics, involving both sociohistorical and linguistic investigation; phonetics/ phonology/ prosody; language documentation; and issues of language shift, endangerment, revitalisation, and post-vernacular linguistic and cultural vitality in minority and endangered language communities, such as the Peranakans in Singapore and the Malays of Sri Lanka; and the sociolinguistics of globalisation, with interests in mobility, urban multiculturalism, computer-mediated communication, and their impact on language contact.

She was part of the team working on Sri Lanka Malay, supported by the Volkswagen Stiftung’s initiative for the documentation of endangered languages (2004-2009), and she recently brought to completion a project on The Ecology and Evolution of Asian Englishes, funded by Hong Kong’s Research Grants Council (2012-2015). She is currently a collaborator in the World Universities Network (WUN) project on Understanding Globalisation – Margins and Peripheries. She has edited a number of books and special issues, in particular on both structural and sociolinguistics aspects of English in Asia. Her book (co-authored with Umberto Ansaldo) on Languages in Contact will be published in late 2015 by Cambridge University Press in their Key Topics in Sociolinguistics series.

She serves on the editorial boards of Language, Culture and Curriculum (Taylor & Francis), Language Sciences (Elsevier), Journal of Second Language Pronunciation (John Benjamins), World Englishes (Wiley-Blackwell); and the Faculty Advisory Board of Mercury, HKU Journal of Undergraduate Humanities. She actively engages in knowledge transfer, and has developed the online resource LinguisticMinorities.hk, for which she won the Faculty of Arts’ Knowledge Exchange Award 2014.

LinguisticMinorities.HK http://linguisticminorities.hk is an online resource that brings together information and state-of-the-art research on the linguistic situations of ethnic minorities in Hong Kong. This comprises communities who moved or were moved from other territories as a result of historical events or periods such as civil war and colonisation, as well as more contemporary economic migration, and includes: the traditional boat-dwelling Tanka, the Weitou community in their New Territories walled villages, and other Chinese immigrant groups of the early 1900s like the Chiu Chau, Hakka, Hokkien, and Shanghainese; South Asians, including peoples from Nepal (many of whom are descendants of the Gurkhas), India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh; Southeast Asian groups, including the Filipinos and Indonesians, of whom a large proportion comprise domestic workers; and newer immigrants of the African diaspora largely involved in trade. LinguisticMinorities.HK highlights the issues and tensions in communicative practices involving communities’ ancestral language and other languages of global and local significance, including language shift and endangerment, and mother-tongue-based education, and aims to raise awareness and promote action in support of linguistic and cultural diversity and inclusion. The project has been funded by HKU’s Knowledge Exchange Impact Project funding (2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15). For her work on the website, Lisa has been awarded the Faculty of Arts’ Faculty Knowledge Exchange Award 2014.

 

The ongoing results of two previous research projects are the following:

The Grammar of Spoken Singapore English Corpus (GSSEC) was collected for the project Towards a Reference Grammar of Singapore English, which was funded by a National University of Singapore Academic Research Grant R-103-000-003-112 (Lisa Lim and Joseph A. Foley, principal investigators; Vivienne Fong, Ni Yi-Bin and Lionel Wee, project members; 1998-2001). GSSEC, collected in the period 1998-99, comprises 32 recorded extracts, coming to approximately 8 hours of conversation, totalling over 60,000 words, of naturally occurring spontaneous discourse of native Singapore English speakers, varying along a number of demographic variables, such as age, gender, ethnic group, and education level. [The data have also been incorporated into the Singapore component of the International Computerised Corpus of English (ICCE-SIN).] The recordings are accompanied by orthographic transcriptions. Researchers are welcome to use the corpus, observing the Ground Rules and Conventions. [download pdf] Requests should be sent to Lisa Lim (lisa.ls.lim@gmail.com), enclosing a completed Usage Declaration form. [download pdf] Users must acknowledge GSSEC as a source in their research (citing Lim 2001 and Lim & Foley 2004), and should send a copy of any resources derived from the data (publications, additional annotations or analyses, etc.) to Lisa Lim.

The documentation of Sri Lanka Malay: Linguistic and cultural creolization endangered, a project funded by the Volkswagen Stiftung’s initiative for the Documentation of Endangered Languages (DoBeS) (2004-2009), involving Umberto Ansaldo (principal investigator; then University of Amsterdam, now University of Hong Kong), Lisa Lim (co-investigator and project manager; then University of Amsterdam, now University of Hong Kong), Walter Bisang (collaborator; Universität Mainz, Germany), Thiru Kandiah (collaborator; University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka and Curtin University), Sebastian Nordhoff (PhD researcher, University of Amsterdam).
