About the Authors
  • Psycholinguistics is the study of how humans produce and understand language. This textbook provides a clear introduction to the subject for students with a basic knowledge of linguistics. It introduces central aspects of the production and comprehension of language and breaks them down into stages for ease of understanding. Students will also investigate how different production and comprehension processes interact. Looks at how language is processed and represented and how to apply this to the analysis of data. Considers everyday linguistic knowledge (such as the information we store for words, what rule systems we have for generating word and sentence structures) and how it relates to the structures and rules proposed by theoretical linguistics. Examples and exercises reinforce key points. Students become familiar with key terms and concepts with sidebar boxes that explain them as they are introduced, a comprehensive glossary and online flashcard facility

    • Online material includes answers to the exercises in the book, additional exercise materials and demonstration versions of experimental techniques
    • Sidebar boxes in the text explain key concepts as they are introduced
    • Includes a comprehensive glossary, with terms highlighted in the text on first introduction. An online version includes a flashcard facility for students to check their learning of key terms

    An excellent addition to the psycholinguistics textbook offerings. It achieves a perfect combination of covering real-world examples (tip of the tongue, slips of the tongue/ear), theories and scholarly background, and hands-on opportunities via exercises and an enhanced companion website. I will definitely use this book when I next teach Psycholinguistics.
