About the Authors
  • A large body of knowledge has accumulated in recent years on the cognitive processes underlying language, much of which comes from studies of Indo-European languages, in particular English. This groundbreaking volume explores the languages of South and Southeast Asia, which differ significantly from Indo-European languages in their grammar, lexicon and spoken forms. This book raises new questions in psycholinguistics and enables readers to re-evaluate previous models in light of new research. With thirty-six chapters divided into three parts - Language Acquisition, Language Processing and Language and Brain - it examines contemporary topics alongside new findings in areas such as first and second language acquisition, the development of literacy, the diagnosis of language and reading disorders, and the relationship between language, brain, culture and cognition. It will be invaluable to all those interested in the languages of South and Southeast Asia, as well as psychologists, linguists, educationalists, speech therapists and neuroscientists.

    • Enables readers to critically assess the findings from research predominantly conducted on English and European languages against the research conducted on the languages of South and Southeast Asia
    • Highlights the rich diversity of languages and writing systems of this linguistically rich region so readers can gain an understanding of the characteristics and features of these languages
    • Reviews the latest research conducted on the fascinating and varied languages of South and Southeast Asia
    • Will appeal to anyone interested in languages and cross-cultural comparisons

    Reviews & endorsements

    Advance praise: ‘The “anglocentrism” of traditional psycholinguistics has undermined a full understanding of both the universal and language-specific aspects of language processing. This book provides a desperately needed remedy, an invaluable resource on language processing in some of the richest and most diverse languages spoken by millions of people.’ --Johannes Ziegler, CNRS and Aix-Marseille University
