Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Neurolinguistics
Subtitle: An Introduction to Spoken Language Processing and its Disorders
Written By: John Ingram

What biological factors make human communication possible? How do we
process and understand language? How does brain damage affect these
mechanisms, and what can this tell us about how language is organized in
the brain? The field of neurolinguistics seeks to answer these questions,
which are crucial to linguistics, psychology and speech pathology alike.
This textbook introduces the central topics in neurolinguistics: speech
recognition, word and sentence structure, meaning, and discourse - in both
'normal' speakers and those with language disorders. It moves on to
provide a balanced discussion of key areas of debate such as modularity and
the 'language areas' of the brain, 'connectionist' versus 'symbolic'
modelling of language processing, and the nature of linguistic and mental
representations. Making accessible over half a century of scientific and
linguistic research, and containing extensive study questions, it will be
welcomed by all those interested in the relationship between language and
the brain.
