Listening to Judith Kroll talking about multilingualism as the norm, but subjected to mythology, including mythology in science. How do we best talk about variation?

Benefits of the pandemic: being able to attend my first scientific conference, Bilingualism Matters . Plus it makes it easier to "listen in" on interesting conversations during the informal zoom break sessions :)

to start a twitter discussion: is everybody happy with the term "heritage language"? At we had lively discussions re "heritage" vs. "community" language. I prefer the latter, as to me it feels open & welcoming, not determined by birth & origin.
