Spring in D.C.

Last week, Naomi headed south to make sure that Spring still exists somewhere. She found it in Washington, D.C., where she met with a number of Georgetown students conducting research on heritage languages and gave a talk about the Heritage Language Variation and Change in Toronto project. Here she is with two Ph.D. students who shared some of their research interests, and some lovely Spring blooms, with her.
