Title: The Handbook of East Asian Psycholinguistics: Volume 3, Korean
Edited By: Chungmin Lee
Greg B. Simpson
Youngjin Kim
Description:

A large body of knowledge has accumulated in recent years on the cognitive
processes and brain mechanisms underlying language. Much of this knowledge
has come from studies of Indo-European languages, in particular English.
Korean, a language of growing interest to linguists, differs significantly
from most Indo-European languages in its grammar, its lexicon, and its
written and spoken forms - features which have profound implications for
the learning, representation and processing of language. This handbook, the
third in a three-volume series on East Asian psycholinguistics, presents a
state-of-the-art discussion of the psycholinguistic study of Korean. With
contributions by over sixty leading scholars, it covers topics in first and
second language acquisition, language processing and reading, language
disorders in children and adults, and the relationships between language,
brain, culture, and cognition. It will be invaluable to all scholars and
students interested in the Korean language, as well as cognitive
psychologists, linguists, and neuroscientists.
