Qs: Psycholinguistic Approach; On-line Experiment

Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton <jessicalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Psycholinguistic Approach
Date: 04-Aug-2005

Subject: Psycholinguistic Approach

I am a Maltese student following a B.Sc (Hons.) in communicationt therapy.
My research project consists of adapting to the Maltese language a section
from the Psycholinguistic Assessments of Language Processing in Aphasia
(PALPA) (Colheart, Lesser and Kay, 1992). This section is about reading
and spelling skills.

I am finding some problems in having access to some research or studies
which I need for my literature review. I would like to know the importance
of the psycholingusitic approach in the speech-language area, any studies
that show comparison between language assessment that follows the
psycholinguistic approach and those which do not and that are used by
speech therapist with elderly population. I need to know - the importance
of this approach in the speech-language area.

I would also like to know if there are :
- studies that show on which criteria the PALPA was standardised,
- what criteria were used for the words to be chosen (especially for the
reading and spelling section)
- and how other languages succeeded in adapting the PALPA to their language.

I would be very grateful for any help you may give me

Subject: On-line Experiment

Dear all,

I'm currently running an on-line experiment for which I (by now
desperately) need native speakers of British English. If you (or any of
your friends) have got about 20 minutes to spare, I'd be extremely grateful
if you could visit


and do the experiment.

I can't offer any financial reward for doing it, but if anyone is interested in
the experiment or test design in generel, you are more than welcome to contact me.

Thanks in advance,

Thomas Hoffmann
