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.

Title: Psycholinguistics
Subtitle: Textbook, 6th ed. Corrected and amended.
Written By: Valery Belyanin
Series Title: Students' Library

Psycholinguistics is an interdisciplinary science that covers topics both
from psychology and linguistics. This textbook is written for future
linguists who are interested in expanding their area of expertise and for
psychologists who are not familiar with linguistics. The author deals with
the following topics: history of psycholinguistics, child speech, speech
production, speech perception, text as an object of psycholinguistics, and
experiments in psycholinguistics. The author has also added to this
edition: a description of forensic psycholinguistics (including analysis of
expertise on hate language), the problem of identification of personality
by speech (including distance profiling on the basis of written text and
oral speech) and problems of manipulation by speech. The book has a
multitude of examples both in English and Russian. It has 420 pages.
