Abstract:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

A classic in its field for almost forty years, "The Articulate Mammal" is a
brilliant introduction to psycholinguistics. In lucid prose Jean Aitchison
introduces and demystifies a complex and controversial subject: What is
language and is it restricted to humans? How do children acquire language
so quickly? Is language innate or learned? She explains the pioneering work
of Noam Chomsky; how children become acclimatized to speech rhythms before
birth; the acquisition of verbs; construction and cognitive grammar; and
aphasia and dementia. She also considers new topics such as language and
evolution and the possibility of a "language gene", bringing the field
right up to date.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
                            Language Acquisition
                            Psycholinguistics
