Centre for Research

Chinese Multimodality Lab

The Chinese Multimodality Lab (CML) at the University of Alberta was founded in 2013. It is a center for research on multimodal Chinese interaction, and grammar, prosody, and body movement in interaction. It brings together scholars and students to study Chinese language and multimodal interaction. The lab members work particularly from the methodological standpoints of conversation analysis, interactional linguistics, and multimodal analysis. The lab is led by Xiaoting Li, Professor of Chinese Linguistics in the Department of East Asian Studies.
