Call for papers

We invite abstracts for oral presentations on any topics in heritage language syntax and syntactic processing, with particular attention to structural aspects of heritage languages, how these are shaped by cross-linguistic influence or transfer from the heritage speakers’ dominant language, how language attrition impacts on this and whether it leads to different representational outcomes in the heritage grammar.

Submission guidelines

Abstracts should be fully anonymous and no longer than 500 words maximum (Times New Roman size 12, with one additional page for examples, figures, tables, and references). Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author. Please submit your abstracts on EasyChair by following this link.

Presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.
