Book description

Our ability to speak, write, understand speech and read is critical to our ability to function in today's society. As such, psycholinguistics, or the study of how humans learn and use language, is a central topic in cognitive science. This comprehensive handbook is a collection of chapters written not by practitioners in the field, who can summarize the work going on around them, but by trailblazers from a wide array of subfields, who have been shaping the field of psycholinguistics over the last decade. Some topics discussed include how children learn language, how average adults understand and produce language, how language is represented in the brain, how brain-damaged individuals perform in terms of their language abilities and computer-based models of language and meaning. This is required reading for advanced researchers, graduate students and upper-level undergraduates who are interested in the recent developments and the future of psycholinguistics.

Reviews

"...Broad in scope and densely packed, the book covers all areas of psycholinguistic research.... The contributions share clarity and a solid grounding in theory old and new, thus providing readers with a quick way to connect what they already know to what perspective changes the more recent research and analysis provide. Given the increase in imaging research in the last two decades, this handbook stands as a needed update to The Oxford Handbook of Psycholinguistics, ed. by Gareth Gaskell (2007).... Recommended..."
