Summary:"Language in Mind provides an exceptionally accessible introduction to the challenging task of learning psycholinguistic research, theory, and application."--
Written by a professional writer and researcher, Julie Sedivy's Language in Mind, Second Edition provides an exceptionally accessible introduction to the challenging task of learning psycholinguistic research, theory, and application. Offering a research-based approach-supported by the new "Researchers at Work" feature which shows the process of conducting an experiment-Language in Mind emphasizes not just what psycholinguists know, but how they've come to know it. To deepen the student's exposure to research and scientific thinking, which is an important skill in follow-up courses, the text also includes a critical examination of primary literature and the debates in the field (supported by the in-text "Digging Deeper" feature; and online with Web Activities and "Language at Large" modules). To complete the study of psycholinguistics, the text establishes connections between theory and everyday phenomena (supported by Boxes and "Questions to Contemplate" features). A robust 4-color illustration program distinguishes this book from others, and further explains and illustrates challenging material.
