Title:"I asked my mom to read it, she told me to change some words": The influence of identity on students' writing among two HLL in a Filipino language course

Abstract:This study looked at how heritage language learner (HLL) identities influence learners’ writing in the target HL. Drawing from Hornberger and Wang’s (2008) definition of HLL identity as a “multidimensional construct”, this study investigated how two HLLs of Filipino with different upbringing, influenced their writing in a Filipino intermediate course. Using a case study approach, this paper analyzed sociocultural forces that affect writer identity formation of the two HLLs through retrospective interviews and examination of their writings. The study revealed that identities they bring with them to the act of writing are shaped by their life histories, multiple identities and surroundings that support their identities as HLL. These multiple identities, such as their invested identities, also affect their text representation in Filipino. Implications from this study addressed the importance of studying HLL identities and its relation to their writing development.
