Previous work on the acquisition of grammatical gender in child and adult heritage speakers of Spanish has found significant mismatches in gender agreement stemming from overgeneralization of the masculine form to contexts in which the feminine is required. It has been argued that these divergences… read more | Chapter
Sagarra, Nuria, Aurora Bel and Liliana Sánchez 2020 Chapter 7. Animacy hierarchy effects on L2 processing of Differential Object MarkingThe Acquisition of Differential Object Marking, Mardale, Alexandru and Silvina Montrul (eds.), pp. 183–206
Studies on L2 processing of Differential Object Marking (DOM) are scant and mostly focus on the animacy of the object. We investigated the interaction of three understudied factors in L1 and L2 processing of DOM: type of animacy (human vs. non-human animal), gender and number of the object… read more | Chapter
Direct object clitics in Spanish are morphological markers at the interface of syntax and phonology, morphology, semantics and information structure. We explore variability in direct object clitic doubling and argument marking in bilingual speakers of Shipibo-Spanish and Ashéninka-Perené-Spanish… read more | Chapter
Sagarra, Nuria, Liliana Sánchez and Aurora Bel 2019 Processing DOM in relative clauses: Salience and optionality in early and late bilingualsRepresentation and Processing in Bilingual Morphology, Austin, Jennifer R. (ed.), pp. 120–160
Early heritage bilinguals have been repeatedly found to differ from late bilinguals and from monolinguals (e.g., Montrul, 2008, 2011). In the realm of Spanish Differential Object Marking (DOM), both early heritage bilinguals (Montrul et al., 2015) and late bilinguals (e.g., Bowles & Montrul, 2008;… read more | Article
Austin, Jennifer R., Liliana Sánchez and Silvia Perez-Cortes 2017 Chapter 10. Null subjects in the early acquisition of English by child heritage speakers of SpanishRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 11: Selected papers from the 44th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), London, Ontario, Perpiñán, Silvia, David Heap, Itziri Moreno-Villamar and Adriana Soto-Corominas (eds.), pp. 209–227
This paper investigates the development of English and Spanish subject production in 8 heritage bilingual children (age range: 4;1–5;3; mean age: 4;7). Oral production of overt and null subjects was assessed using a picture-based story re-telling task and a description task. Subjects were coded… read more | Chapter
Camacho, José and Liliana Sánchez 2017 Does the verb raise to T in Spanish?Boundaries, Phases and Interfaces: Case studies in honor of Violeta Demonte, Fernández-Soriano, Olga, Elena Castroviejo Miró and Isabel Pérez-Jiménez (eds.), pp. 47–62
We test adverb-verb word orders in Peruvian Spanish against analyses of verb movement (Pollock 1989, Embick & Noyer 2001). While the preferred order is V-adv-O, the alternative Adv-V-O is also possible. We propose that the verb raises in overt syntax and morphological insertion targets either the… read more | Chapter
Syrett, Kristen, Jennifer R. Austin, Liliana Sánchez, Christina Germak, Anne Lingwall, Silvia Perez-Cortes, Anthony Arias-Amaya and Hannah Baker 2017 The influence of conversational context and the developing lexicon on the calculation of scalar implicatures: Insights from Spanish-English bilingual childrenLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 7:2, pp. 230–264
Although monolingual children do not generally calculate the upper-bounded scalar implicature (SI) associated with ‘some’ without additional support, monolingual Spanish-speaking children have been reported to do so with algunos (‘some’), and further distinguish algunos from unos. Given documented… read more | Article
Mayer, Elisabeth and Liliana Sánchez 2016 Object agreement marking and information structure along the Quechua-Spanish contact continuumThe Acquisition and Processing of Spanish and Portuguese Morphosyntax: Theoretical and experimental issues, Klassen, Rachel, Anahí Alba de la Fuente, Joanne Markle LaMontagne and Almudena Basanta y Romero-Valdespino (eds.), pp. 544–581
Direct object clitics in Spanish are morphological markers at the interfaces of syntax, phonology, morphology, and information structure (Zwicky, 1985; Ordóñez & Repetti, 2006; Belloro, 2007; Spencer & Luís, 2012). They play an important part in argument morphology in Spanish and are subject to… read more | Article
This paper discusses evidence of crosslinguistic influence that involves the emergence of new patterns of feature-morphology mapping in Spanish as spoken by native speakers of Quechua. It builds on the notions of functional interference and functional convergence (Sánchez 2003, 2004) and of feature… read more | Article
Putnam, Michael T. and Liliana Sánchez 2013 : A prolegomenon to modeling heritage language grammarsLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 3:4, pp. 478–508
Modeling the competence grammar of heritage speakers who exhibit low proficiency in their L1 represents a significant challenge for generative and experimental approaches to bilingual linguistic research. In this paper we revisit the core tenets of the incomplete acquisition hypothesis as developed… read more | Article
Vogel, Carl, Ger Lynch, Erwan Moreau, Liliana Sánchez and Phil Ritchie 2013 Found in translation: Computational discovery of translation effectsTranslation Spaces 2, pp. 81–104
We describe translation effects that have been studied in the automated text classification literature. We expand on a point within this research space, quality effects, with our own work in this area. We present an efficient method for evaluating text quality on the basis of reference texts. The… read more | Article
