Research Interests

Dr. Koronkiewicz’s research interests include bilingualism, code-switching, methodology, processing, pronouns, second language acquisition, and syntax. Current projects concern bilingualism; syntactic properties of code-switching; quantitative/experimental methodology; methodological concerns in bilingual research; the bilingual spectrum (e.g., early vs. late, simultaneous vs. consecutive); heritage speaker bilingualism; second language acquisition; and bilingual processing.
