My publications address questions pertaining to the broad and interdisciplinary field of bi-multilingualism, with emphases on two contexts: the ethnolinguistic minority community and minority/community/heritage language education. I am interested in the interplay of processes that underpin, guide, and shape bilingual practice in children who speak unprivileged home languages, how this bilingual profile evolves into adulthood, and how language (as social practice) connects with and influences other parts of human sociality. The focus of my work is not necessarily on language as a theoretical abstraction. Conversely, I am more drawn to how language is used in specific contexts and what is achieved through strategic linguistic practices.
