Meeting Description:

In the aftermath of immigration, new generations often speak ''heritage languages'', a notion Rothman (2009) defines in this way: ''A language qualifies as a heritage language if it is a language spoken at home or otherwise readily available to young children, and crucially this language is not a dominant language of the larger (national) society''. Heritage languages have only recently become a major topic of interest among linguists, explored for their implications for linguistic theory, especially in terms of acquisition, attrition, and change. This workshop aims to promote discussion of heritage languages in the Americas across different language, subfields, and theoretical persuasions.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for 30-minute presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions) and traditional (paper) posters on any aspect of the linguistics of heritage languages in the Americas (e.g., structural, generative, historical, sociolinguistic, or experimental). Abstracts should be no more than one page in length, but may include a second page with diagrams, charts, and references.

The submission deadline is June 15, 2019.

Please submit abstracts to EasyAbs:

We will contact those accepted for presentation or poster by July 15, 2019.
