The Workshop on Immigrant Languages in the Americas is an annual conference focused on heritage language research. The next WILA will be held 10-12 October 2019 at Østfold University College (Halden, Norway).

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.

The organizers invite abstracts for 30-minute presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions), electronic posters, and traditional posters on any aspect of the linguistics of heritage languages in the Americas (e.g., structural, generative, historical, sociolinguistic, or experimental).

The submission deadline is June 15, 2019.
