Grammars that develop under constrained input conditions provide us with unique insights into the mechanisms of synchronic and diachronic language change. For this reason, the syntax of heritage languages has been the focus of a large number of experimental, as well as theoretical, studies over the last few decades.

This conference, which marks the conclusion of the ERC Microcontact project (https://microcontact.sites.uu.nl/) at the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics, brings together junior and senior experts on the syntax of a wide range of typologically different heritage and/or minority languages in contact.

We welcome papers on any topics in heritage and/or minority language syntax, with particular attention to the theoretical aspects of language contact and change (including interface phenomena) and its bearings on our knowledge and understanding of syntactic theory.
