Notes: Randy LaPolla was born and raised in New York. He received a B.A. in Asian Studies and an M.A. in TESOL from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, then lived in China for three years, teaching for one year in Changsha and Shanghai, and studying for two years in the Linguistics Section of the Chinese Department of Peking University. He then went to the University of California, Berkeley, where he received an M.A. and Ph.D. in Linguistics. He next spent six years at the Institute of History and Philology of the Academia Sinica in Taiwan, and then moved to City University of Hong Kong. He is now Chair of Linguistics at La Trobe University. His work mainly revolves around the recording and analysis (including comparative studies) of Sino-Tibetan languages and attempting to answer the question of why the languages of this language family are the way they are. A general interest in typology informs this work. From this work he has also developed certain answers to more general theoretical questions, such as the nature of language and its function in communication.
