I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Psychology Department at Lehigh University. My adviser, Professor Barbara Malt, and I are conducting research on the effect of a second language on usage patterns in the first language. I have been working on a research study that evaluates Spanish pro-drop tendencies in Spanish-English bilinguals. We are also using follow-up tasks to determine whether bilinguals still prefer the more native-like pattern in some contexts. For comparisons with the bilinguals, we need data on the same tasks from (largely) monolingual Spanish speakers. We would like to hear from anyone in a Spanish speaking country in the Americas who might be interested in collaborating to collect data from monolingual Spanish speakers. We will compare the results from the bilinguals in the USA and the monolinguals.

I look forward to hearing from you.
