Diego Pascual y Cabo is Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics and Director of the Spanish Heritage Language Program at Texas Tech University. Diego received his BA in English from the University of Granada (Spain) and his M.A. in Spanish from Northern Illinois University. In 2013, Diego received his Ph. D. in Hispanic Linguistics from the University of Florida.
His primary research interests are heritage speaker bilingualism and second language acquisition. Diego’s work, which is approached from a generative point of view, has appeared in several scholarly journals, proceedings, and edited volumes. Currently, he is examining the acquisition of different morpho-syntactic properties in bilingual heritage speakers so as to expand on our understanding of how and why heritage speaker grammars differ from their monolingual counterparts.
When he is not being a linguist, Diego likes traveling, working out and staying active. He also enjoys cooking, reading, and chatting with friends... but above all, he loves spending time with his wife (Laurie) and his two children (Teo and Pau).
