Switch cost, code-switching, heritage language, second language, bilingualism.


I am a PhD candidate in Linguistics at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil). My reserach is about switch cost during code-switching specifically in heritage and second language speakers who have Brazilian Portuguese as their first language. In my Masters I investigated code-switching in bilinguals of the Portuguese-Talian pair, a minority language spoken in southern Brazil.
