Research Interests:
Liliana Sánchez’s research interests are bilingual, heritage and comparative syntax. In bilingual syntax, my current work focuses on crosslinguistic influence across language components especially syntax, morphology and informational structure (Spanish in contact with Quechua, Shipibo, Ashaninka, Korean and English). My work on heritage bilingualism focuses on modeling processes of divergent access to heritage grammars. In comparative syntax, I work on the interface between informational structure and morphosyntax (Spanish, Quechua). I am also interested in language assessment in minority populations.
