This study explores the bilingual phonology of two heritage speakers of Moundridge Schweitzer German (msg) from Moundridge, Kansas. The output of Moundridge Schweitzer German /a/ and /ɔ/ and American English /a/ and /ɔ/ were collated and no proof of phonological or phonetic convergence was found. One case of divergence existed.
