  1. Hello I have a question on Svetlana’s presentation for discussion: what kind of criteria was used to select participants and in what way can they be considered representative of the context analyzed?

    1. Dear Isabella,

      Thank you for your question. What was important is that their are second generation immigrant or minority speakers. Of course, only 30 participants cannot be representative. We can take it as a pilot study, the beginning or a larger research project. Also, our participants were of the particular age, young adults, it would be nice to extend the same in terms of different L1s, age, gender and other important factors.

      Thank you for your comment!

  2. Interesting topic and presentation of Zuzana Drugová and Jasna Uhláriková!
