Product Description

Review

 This textbook is modern, thorough, witty, and deeply instructive.  At last, students of the psychology of language (in the classroom and out) have a book they′ll value and enjoy. – Victor Ferreira, University of California, San Diego   This is the psycholinguistics textbook we′ve all been waiting for. Traxler has brought us into the 21st century. He surveys the field with depth, breadth, and most definitely wit. Students will find the text quite accessible, and instructors will appreciate the rigorous content. – Morton Ann Gernsbacher, University of Wisconsin–Madison   It′s all here, from Nim to Noam, and "the horse raced past the barn" to the elephant in Groucho′s pants. Traxler covers the subject matter of modern psycholinguistics with thoroughness and panache. – Mark S. Seidenberg, University of Wisconsin–Madison   Engaging and witty, this is a refreshing and informative textbook on the psychology of language that will appeal to students and teachers alike. – Gerry Altmann, University of York

Format:Hardcover
Very well written, ideas are presented clearly and with just enough detail to encourage you to read further. A very useful basic book for beginners in the field, or anyone who is interested in it but lacks the background knowledge.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
its just endless text after text, it never ends. no pictures, no definitions, just endless text. if psycholinguistics isn't your best subject this book is certainly not going to help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and friendly- reader source of information for people interested and involved in linguistics and language research!! 8 Feb 2013
By Maria Feliza Monta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Traxler's introduction to Psycholinguistics latest book offers an up to date analysis of the psychological processes that enable humans to use language as one of the primary means of communication. Even though the text is dense and offers an extended review of the most relevant research works within the field, the language is very descriptive and there are also charts, visuals and graphs to better figure out content and theories. I am enjoying this material in my current studies in Ed. Linguistics!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great condition, slow to ship. 24 Feb 2013
By catherine m cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book as it was a college requirement for my daughter. The book was in fabulous condition & the price was far less than anywhere else we looked. I give it 4 stars only because, free shipping is yet another huge savings, but it was very slow. Will definitely go back for her next semester, just a lot sooner.
