Meeting Description: Heritage speakers, or early bilingual speakers of minority languages (typically 2nd or 3rd generation immigrants), have not received much attention in linguistic research until recently. Most of these studies have shown that heritage speakers attain different degrees of command of their first or family language, but on average they do not reach native-like attainment in adulthood. There is a longer tradition of research on minority languages, for example, minority French in Ontario, which examines minority language restriction as one factor in language variation.
