This handbook focuses on new theoretical challenges associated with
process-oriented psycholinguistics.

Speech acts are embedded in situations that may vary in a multitude of
parameters. Speech production and comprehension necessarily have to be
both robust and flexible. Flexibility includes that speakers vary in
speed, articulation, choice of words and interaction style, depending
on specific context conditions. There is need of theoretical
approaches that do not exclusively stick to ideals such as
grammaticality and coherence - which collapse when confronted with
irregularities - but are robust enough to deal with irregularities and

The handbook describes different methods of analyzing or
reconstructing variants and options of language use. The articles
contain transcriptions of spontaneous speech as well as experimentally
verified studies. The same holds for simulation techniques modelling
partial processes and evaluating their efficiency. There are no
restrictions with respect to theoretical starting points - modelling
of speech acts by neuronal networks as well as rule-based knowledge of
representation are both covered in the book. The languages of
publication are German and English.
