This Forum challenges and problematizes the term incomplete acquisition, which has been widely used to describe the state of competence of heritage speaker (HS) bilinguals for well over a decade (see, e.g., Montrul, ).

It is suggested and defended that HS competence, while often different from monolingual peers, is in fact not incomplete (given Cited by: Second generation immigrants are more likely to lose their first language than to remain bilingual Contrary to the popularized (but inaccurate) belief that immigrant children are not learning English, this process of L1 loss is occurring much sooner than in prior waves of immigration, when it was more typical for the second generation to remain bilingual, and only Cited by: L1 refers to the native language, main language, mother tongue, or source language spoken by an individual.
