David Yoong is a linguist at the University of Malaya. He completed his Doctoral program (Linguistics) at La Trobe University, his Masters of Criminal Justice and Linguistics at the University of Malaya, and his BA (English Language Studies) at Universiti Sains Malaysia. His areas of research specialisation include discourse and critical discourse analyses.
He especially welcomes PhD candidates, scholars and advocacy groups to work with him in the area of orderliness and disorderliness in symbolic interactionism, learning outcomes management systems, and in studies focusing on the linguistic construction of realities.
When not doing any research work, he is either executing licks and riffs on the guitar or polishing his camera lenses. Some evenings, he can be seen rollerblading in an empty carpark or just working out.
