Justin's research addresses language contact between Spanish and various minority languages of Argentina. His primary focus 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 how these issues manifest themselves in SantiagueƱo Quechua and Patagonian Welsh.
