Linguistics: applied linguistics, heritage / second language pedagogy, language program administration, L2 / Ln acquisition, phonology / phonetics, morphology, sociolinguistics, syntax, psycholinguistics, and any other area of Hispanic / Lusophone linguistics within any theoretical or quantitative / qualitative framework.
