Product Description

Review

This very fine book represents state–of–the–art research in a relatively unconventional easy–to–read frame. Language <!––end––>

If you want to find out about the current state of knowledge concerning language in the brain with the least possible pain, then read this friendly book. David Crystal, English Today

From the Back Cover

This book deals with words, and how humans learn them, remember them, understand them and find the ones they want. It discusses the structure and content of the human word–store or mental lexicon with particular reference to the spoken language of those with English as their native language.

Since the first two editions of Words in the Mind were published, work on the lexicon has expanded quickly. This growth is reflected in this third edition, which contains substantial new material. There is an extra chapter on layering and meaning change, and several others have been considerably enlarged. The notes and suggestions for further reading have been updated, and many new references have been included.


The book remains accessible in style and easy to read for both undergraduates and non–specialists.

Format: Paperback
I have studied a lot of subjects in my time and some of the most boring have been written in the area of linguistics. Words in the Mind is not only an exception but I would go so far as to say that it is perhaps one of the most stimulating texts on any academic subject. Indeed, if you like poetry, which I don't, you'll like it even more than I did.

It makes a good job of combining ideas from cognitive psychology (also not usually the most readable of subjects) with linguistics. Entertaining and informative, whilst incorporating important and up to date research, I found this most readable.
