Multilingual pretrained language models (MPLMs) exhibit multilinguality and are well suited for transfer across languages. Most MPLMs are trained in an unsupervised fashion and the relationship between their objective and multilinguality is unclear. More specifically, the question whether MPLM representations are language-agnostic or they simply interleave well with learned task prediction heads arises. In this work, we locate language-specific information in MPLMs and identify its dimensionality and the layers where this information occurs. We show that language-specific information is scattered across many dimensions, which can be projected into a linear subspace. Our study contributes to a better understanding of MPLM representations, going beyond treating them as unanalyzable blobs of information.
