Product Description

Review

‘An excellent and very welcome guide to psycholinguistics…highly recommended.’
The Washington Post
‘The reader’s curiosity about the complexities of the mother tongue is kept right to the end.’
The Times Educational Supplement
‘This is an excellent text which would give the undergraduate student as fine an introduction to the field of psycholinguistics as is available today.’

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has remained a classic for almost forty years, it remains a fascinating, brilliant and clear introduction to psycholinguistics. It examines the question of what is language from a structuralist point of view, examines whether language is limited to humans, how children acquire language and the great question of whether language is innate or a learned capacity. The groundbreaking work of Naom Chomsky is examined and the developments and schools within in psycholinguistics are examined in a fairly impartial manner.

The strength of the book is that it is well written, is replete with examples and is fun to read.
