Esther Álvarez de la Fuente is a professor in the Department of English at the University of Valladolid (Spain). Her main research interest is the morphosyntactic analysis of the cases of natural interpreting/translation (the translation done by bilinguals in everyday circumstances without academic formation in it) performed by bilingual children together with the analysis of the development of the translation ability in natural interpreters. As a member of the research group UVALAL (University of Valladolid Language Acquisition Lab), she works on the analysis of linguistic phenomena related to languages in contact observed in both spontaneous and experimental data from child and adult bilinguals.
