Алсу Иршатовна Сенжапова
Выпускница кафедры китайской филологии ИСАА МГУ. Во время обучения в Институте стран Азии и Африки в течение трех лет под чутким руководством Артемия Михайловича Карапетьянца изучала тайваньский идиом, его лексический и фонетический аспекты.
Тема выступления: Соотношение фонетики тайваньского идиома и диалектных точек миньнаньхуа в КНР
Краткое описание темы: Во время выступления мне бы хотелось рассказать о своем опыте всестороннего изучения особенностей фонетической системы тайваньского идиома и попытках соотнести их с фонетическими особенностями диалектных точек южноминьской группы диалектов в КНР.
