Experimental Psycholinguistics (PLE: Psycholinguistics) An Introduction

by Sam (Princeton University) Glucksberg, Joseph H. (University of Maryland, USA) Danks

Part of the Psychology Library Editions: Psycholinguistics Series

Experimental Psycholinguistics (PLE: Psycholinguistics) An Introduction Synopsis

How is speech produced and understood in the context of everyday communication? First published in 1975, this book is considered one the best of the early books in this field. The task of psycholinguistics is to discover how people produce and comprehend speech. This encompasses virtually all aspects of psychology, including perceptual, conceptual, and social processes. The authors tried to capture the flavour of this approach to the psychology of language by describing the major contemporary issues, problems, and phenomena, of the time, being dealt with in laboratories and in field studies, and by trying to make sense of the data they had. Experimental Psycholinguistics: An Introduction does not try to deal exhaustively with any one issue in linguistics or in psychology. Rather it tries to integrate the authors' knowledge of language and language behaviour so that someone entering the field has an intelligible framework with which to start.
