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.

Fields: Anthropological Linguistics; Bilingualism; General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics; Language Documentation; Language Contact; Sociolinguistics
