Abstract: This study examines and compares the use of grammatical gender in ten Spanish children heritage speakers living in Amsterdam and in ten Dutch children heritage Speakers living in Palma de Mallorca. The results in the Director-Matcher Task revealed an overextension of the masculine form and more problems with feminine and non-canonical nouns in the Spanish heritage speakers. However, regarding the exposition and quality of Spanish, the author did not find any specific pattern or interaction between these two extra-linguistic factors that could explain the performance of the Spanish children heritage speakers.
