Full Title: Conference on Formal Approaches to Heritage Language 

Date: 20-Apr-2012 - 21-Apr-2012
Location: Amherst, Massachusetts, USA 
Contact Person: Barbara Pearson
Meeting Email: bpearson at research.umass.edu

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Language Acquisition 

Call Deadline: 29-Feb-2012 

Meeting Description:

'Heritage speakers' have been described by Polinsky and Kagan (2007) as people raised in a home where one language is spoken, but who subsequently switch to another dominant language. This conference aims to explore the formal properties of Heritage Speaker grammars and where they diverge from both native 'baseline' and L2 speaker grammars. The program will also include a workshop on research techniques for heritage languages.

Invited Speakers:

Ana Perez-Leroux, University of Toronto
Acrisio Pires, University of Michigan
Maria Polinsky, Harvard University 

Call for Papers:

Abstracts for presentations or posters are solicited on both theoretical and acquisition issues that connect Heritage to L1 or L2 research.        

Priority will be given to work that addresses specific theoretical domains, such as, but not limited to:  aspect, binding, quantification, and movement and more specifically, agreement, case, tense, and mood.
 
Talks will be 20 minutes long, with 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be one page, font size 12 pt., with one-inch margins. A second page may (optionally) be used for examples, tables or graphs, and references. In order to maintain anonymity during the review process, please do not include your name or otherwise identify yourself anywhere in your abstract.  

Abstracts should be sent by email in pdf format to bpearson at research.umass.edu. Please use 'abstract submission' as subject heading. The body of the message should include the author's name(s), title, and contact information. The deadline for submissions is midnight (EST) February 29, 2012. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by March 10.
