Book Information


Title: Developmental Psycholinguistics
Subtitle: On-line methods in childrens language processing
Edited By: Irina A. Sekerina
Eva M. Fernández
Harald Clahsen
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 44

How do infants and young children coordinate information in real time to
arrive at sentence meaning from the words and structure of the sentence and
from the nonlinguistic context? This volume introduces readers to an
emerging field of research, experimental developmental
, and to the four predominant methodologies used to
study on-line language processing in children. Authored by key figures in
psycholinguistics, neuroscience and developmental psychology, the chapters
cover event-related brain potentials, free-viewing eyetracking,
looking-while-listening, and reaction-time techniques, also providing a
historical backdrop for this line of research. Multiple aspects of
experimental design, data collection and data analysis are addressed in
detail, alongside surveys of recent important findings about how infants
and children process sounds, words, and sentences. Indispensable for
students and researchers working in the areas of language acquisition,
developmental psychology and developmental neuroscience of language, this
volume will also appeal to speech language pathologists and early childhood
