Product Description

Review

"Thank goodness for Harley's textbook, The Psychology of Language! I have been recommending it to undergraduate students in my third year ‘Language and Cognition’ course ever since the first edition came out because it provides the ideal resource for accessing basic information about virtually every topic within the domain of psycholinguistics. With each new edition, the coverage becomes increasingly comprehensive and accessible and, while the growing popularity of neuroimaging is acknowledged, an appropriately cautious approach is taken to its contribution to our understanding of language processing. Whether such a stance will hold up in future years is an interesting question – and is the very question that Harley leaves us with." - Marcus Taft, University of New South Wales, Australia

"This excellent book provides a very good overview of topics and controversies and the most important models in the field of psycholinguistics. The breadth is impressive without becoming shallow; the text is engaging and comprehensible. Highly recommended." - Ken Ramshøj Christensen, Aarhus University, Denmark

"This edition of Trevor Harley’s introduction to psycholinguistics retains its broad coverage of the science of language, and infuses it with new material that enhances our appreciation of how contemporary tools and findings color the mix of evolving theory and experiment. Harley examines not just how language use can be studied, but what that study can be used for. It’s a timely synthesis, well executed and accessible." - Merrill Garrett, University of Arizona, USA

"Trevor Harley has yet again revised his very successful textbook on psycholinguistics in light of new research. The coverage of this work is quite remarkable and it constitutes the ideal resource for advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students and researchers interested in the field. He extensively discusses theoretical developments and experimental studies that are leading to the transformation of this field of enquiry." - Martin Pickering, University of Edinburgh, UK

Praise for previous editions:

"It is comprehensive, covering all aspects of psycholinguistics ... As such it is an excellent companion to an undergraduate speech and language therapy degree course, interlinking modules of study into a cohesive whole. It would also be an accessible reference resource for practising therapists." - Kathy Jones-Williams, in Speech & Language Therapy in Practice

"I want this book for me, not just for my students. For the student, it's an exceptionally thorough, but lively, introduction to language use in a wider context. For me, it's a valuable reminder of psycholinguistics's evolution from its concerns with the psychological reality of grammar, to its current spot at the center of modern cognitive neuroscience." - Gary S. Dell, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,USA

"Trevor Harley provides a systematic and lucid introduction to the scientific study of human language use. He traverses a complex range of topics from foundational theory and experiment to practical matters of pedagogy and pathology. It's a winning combination delivered with wit, balanced accuracy, and admirable directness of style." - Professor Merrill Garrett, Psychology Department, University of Arizona, USA

"Harley’s book offers an excellent means of enhancing our understanding of language. It provides a clear, comprehensive and thorough review of the current state of play in psycholinguistics, making it an ideal choice for advanced undergraduate and graduate students." - Annukka Lindell, University of Wales, Bangor, UK

"Harley has thoroughly revised his very successful textbook on psycholinguistics in light of new research. The coverage of this work is quite remarkable and it constitutes the ideal resource for advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students and researchers interested in the field." - Martin Pickering, University of Edinburgh, UK

Format: Paperback
As an undergraduate I used Trevor Harley's first edition, as a postgraduate I used his second edition, and now as a lecturer I use his third edition. His book just gets better and better and my students love it too; finding it easy to read and understand. Harley takes the most abstract of concepts and theories and explains them in a way even your grandmother would understand. No other textbook explains psycholinguistics as well as this one. In my opinion, anyone that can make syntax interesting, as Trevor Harley does, deserves 5 stars! Without question, an excellent academic textbook and I am looking forward to his next.

The delivery was fast and the book arrived undamaged, The product itself was required for my Psycholinguistics module at University. The structure of the book is very easy to follow, however it's not exactly what one might call a relaxing read. The detail this book has provided me with is invaluable and I would recommend it to any budding Pyscholinguist out there!

Book fine but be wary that Used- Good apparently means highlighting throughout the entire book - very distracting when trying to pick out your own information. I was expecting some scuffs, folded pages etc and maybe some erasable pencil makes, not highlighter all over the entire thing. For what I paid, I would say it was very misleading. Not what I would describe as Used Good, seriously considered returning but I need it. Will not order again.

The book was received in very good packaging. I would recommend it to English language or psychology students interested in language. It is a bit technical though.
