Pablo E. Requena

Pablo E. Requena is Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). Pablo is a linguist who specializes in language acquisition. In particular, he is interested in how Spanish-speaking children acquire systematic patterns of sociolinguistic variation in grammar. He is also interested in the effect of input quantity and quality as well as internal cognitive mechanisms in the acquisition of Spanish morphosyntax. Therefore, he not only studies children acquiring Spanish in monolingual contexts, but also as a heritage language. Pablo holds degrees from the National University of Cordoba (Argentina), and Penn State University.
