Abstract This thesis studies the metalinguistic phonotactic knowledge in Albanian heritage speakers whose dominant language is Greek, aiming to investigate whether phonotactics in a heritage language can be incompletely acquired and/or attrited. To this end, a group of 6 Albanian heritage speakers who were raised in Greece and a control group of 2 Albanian immigrants who moved to Greece in adulthood participated in a three-consonant word-internal cluster syllabification task, syllabifying 66 nonce-words that contained clusters allowed by Albanian phonotactics, but disallowed by the phonotactics of Modern Greek. The great between-subjects and within-subjects variability in the results of both groups suggests incomplete acquisition of heritage phonotactics by heritage speakers, as well as some degree of attrition in the first-generation Albanian immigrants. I argue that this variability is attributed to the use of Multiple Parallel Grammars (Kiparsky, 1993; Anttila, 2002a, 2002b; Anttila and Cho, 1998; Revithiadou and Tzakosta 2004a, 2004b; Tzakosta, 2004, among others), which is indicative of incomplete acquisition and non-native ultimate attainment in the phonotactic knowledge of heritage speakers, while the use of Multiple Parallel Grammars by first generation immigrants can suggest first language attrition of phonotactics.
