Description - Psycholinguistics by John Field

Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students. Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections - introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained. Psycholinguistics: * is a comprehensive introduction to psycholinguistic theory * covers the core areas of psycholinguistics: language as a human attribute, language and the brain, vocabulary storage and use, language and memory, the four skills (writing, reading, listening, speaking), comprehension, language impairment and deprivation * draws on a range of real texts, data and examples, including a Radio Four interview, an essay written by a deaf writer, and the transcript of a therapy session addressing stuttering * provides classic readings by the key names in the discipline, including Jean Aitchison, Terrence Deacon, Robert Logie, Willem Levelt and Dorothy Bishop. Written by an experienced teacher, this accessible textbook is an essential resource for all students of English language, linguistics and psychology.
