Welcome to my homepage. My name is CHOW Ka Fat, or Ka-fat CHOW, following the Western habit of placing the family name at the back of one's name. At present, I hold five degrees. The latest one is a PhD degree for which I have done some research on linguistics. Apart from linguistics, I am also interested in history and mathematics as well as an enthusiast of the Mastermind game. Here you can find the links to two chronologies compiled by me and my Mastermind website as well as the materials of some of my academic presentations in English. I also maintain a Chinese homepage. If you can read Chinese, you may visit my Chinese homepage which includes some of my essays on history, mathematics and linguistics. Hope that you love this site.
