Meeting Description:

‘Heritage speakers’ have been described by Polinsky and Kagan (2007) as people raised in a home where one language is spoken, but who subsequently switch to another dominant language. This conference aims to explore the formal properties of Heritage Speaker grammars and where they diverge from both native ‘baseline’ and L2 speaker grammars. The program will also include a workshop on research techniques for heritage languages.
