Abstract:

Note: This is a copy of a previously published book.

"Words in the Mind" is all about words: how we learn them, remember them,
understand them, and find the precise ones we wish to use. It also
addresses the structure and content of the human word-store - the mental
lexicon - with particular reference to the spoken language of native
English speakers. Great strides have been made in our understanding of the
lexicon since the first three editions of Words in the Mind were published,
and it has developed into a major interest of study among linguists,
psychologists, sociologists, and those who teach English as a second
language. In addition to numerous updates and revisions, the 4th edition
features a wealth of new material, including an all-new chapter focusing
exclusively on the brain and language. Enhanced coverage is also provided
on lexical corpora - computerized databases - and on lexical change of
meaning. Many of the notes and suggestions for further reading are also
expanded and updated. Written by a true master of making scholarly concepts
accessible, the 4th edition of "Words in the Mind" remains a rich and
revealing resource for students and non-specialists alike, presenting the
latest insights into the complex relationship between language, words, and
the human mind.
