Processing and Production in Heritage Speakers: The Role of Disambiguating Cues

Project description

Shedding light on how heritage speakers process heritage language

Heritage speakers (HSs) are individuals who have learned a language at home as children. This language differs from the main language spoken in the community they live in. To date, little is known about how HSs process the heritage language in real-time. With a focus on Romanian HSs, with German as the second language, the EU-funded ProHeritageSpeakers project will, for the first time, examine whether HSs use morphosyntactic cues when comprehending heritage language input in real-time. It will also look into how the presence of similar grammatical information in the dominant second language modulates comprehension and production in the heritage language.
