Justin is a sociolinguist specializing in language contact situations involving minority languages, particularly those of Argentina. The central issue of his research is minority language resilience. His current primary project concerns the relationship between language ideologies, institutional factors, and language use in the province of Corrientes, where bilingualism in Spanish and Argentine Guarani is widespread. Additionally, he investigates the mutual phonological and morphosyntactic effects of the contact between these two languages and the sociolinguistic factors which have impacted the transmission of Argentine Guarani. He is also interested in these issues as they pertain to SantiagueƱo Quichua and Patagonian Welsh.
