Masha directs 9th Heritage Language Institute

June 15-18 at UW in Seattle, Maria Polinsky leads five faculty and four presenters at the Ninth Heritage Language Research Institute, in pursuing several questions from the standpoint of research, language planning, and linguistic training: How do bilingual children turn into adult heritage speakers? What are the vulnerable domains in the languages of both populations, what are their strengths, and where are the differences? And how can we preserve and maintain the relative stability of early childhood bilingualism?
