Product Description

Review

"The book provides a comprehensive review of this complex field. It’s a certain choice for undergraduate students. It also points the more advanced student towards a radical new agenda for psycholinguistics, in which neurological evidence will play a key role."Alan Kennedy, University of Dundee

"Harley's second edition covers psycholinguistic research with impressive breadth and depth, making it well-suited for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. Remarkably clear and concise summaries of background material from linguistics and cognitive psychology should make psycholinguistic research and theories accessible to students with little background in either." Zenzi Griffin, Stanford University

"Dr Harley provides a very readable introduction to the issues, methods, and theories which frame the study of language from a psychological perspective. He has done an impressive job in writing such a comprehensive introduction to the field of psycholinguistics." Kathryn Kohnert, University of Minnesota

"The Psychology of Language (Second Edition) clearly integrates theory and research into a format that is clear and accessible by readers at the undergraduate and graduate levels ... the work is comprehensive, interesting, and challenging, and should stimulate critical thinking and further research by students. Highly recommended for courses dealing with language and psycholinguistics." Jeanette Altarriba, University of Albany, State University of New York

"It covers an impressive range of topics without abstracting away from individual findings, thereby not only providing information about many different research methods, but also enabling the reader to understand why the field's theoretical landscape looks exactly the way it does." Barbara Kaup, Florida State University

This has been the recommended course text in modules in two years of my degree, and it is easy to see why (not just because the writer is also a lecturer of ours.. and the Dean of our school!). It is well written, accessable and keeps your attention; discussing key theories in psycholinguisics in a manner that takes some of the sting out of the topic.
