Abstract:

Psycholinguistics is the study of how humans produce and understand language.This textbook provides a clear introduction to the subject for students with abasic knowledge of linguistics. It introduces central aspects of theproduction and comprehension of language and breaks them down into stages forease of understanding. Students will also investigate how different productionand comprehension processes interact. Looks at how language is processed andrepresented and how to apply this to the analysis of data. Considers everydaylinguistic knowledge (such as the information we store for words, what rulesystems we have for generating word and sentence structures) and how itrelates to the structures and rules proposed by theoretical linguistics.Examples and exercises reinforce key points. Students become familiar with keyterms and concepts with sidebar boxes that explain them as they areintroduced, a comprehensive glossary and online flashcard facility
