 Jean Aitchison, THE ARTICULATE MAMMAL
 An Introduction to Psycholinguistics, 4th Edition
 This highly successful text has been substantially revised to take 
 account of the considerable changes in Chomsky's recent ideas. The 
 chapters on grammatical innateness, child language acquisition, and 
 speech comprehension have been largely rewritten and new material and 
 references throughout the book make it completely up-to-date with key 
 developments in the field.
