Dr. Bullock's current research program is devoted to empirical investigations of the effect of bilingualism and language contact on linguistic structure. Her interests lie generally in exploring the Romance language diaspora in the Americas, particularly among rural populations who have little to no formal education in French, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. This research program involves fieldwork in two locations: in the linguistic enclave community of Frenchville, Pennsylvania, a village in its last stages of a language shift from a bilingual French-English community to an English monolingual one and, on the island of Hispaniola along the border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Dr. Bullock also conducts laboratory research with bilinguals and language learners on various aspects of bilingual speech, including code-switching
