that are fluent or dominant, to those who only retain basic receptive abilities
in their heritage language. Heritage speaker populations offer a unique
opportunity for the study of bilingual acquisition at the limits of language
competence. This workshop invites presentation proposals on language acquisition
in heritage populations that makes a contribution to linguistic theory and the
theory of language acquisition.
