Sara Stefanich, PhD
Sara’s research interests include bi/multilingualism, code-switching, phonological theory, and the syntax-phonology interface. Her current projects investigate the acquisition of the Spanish palatal nasal by L1 English/L2 Spanish bilinguals and the phonological realization of code-switched structures at the word level by early Spanish/English bilinguals. Her dissertation examines the morphological and phonological restrictions on word-internal code-switching focusing specifically on whether words that have morphological mixing can also have phonological mixing (i.e., demonstrate evidence of two different phonologies).
