How do humans understand and process language? The 18 contributions in "Lexical Representation and Process "provide a coherent and well-documented frame of reference for a field of study that is becoming central to both linguistics and psycholinguistics. They include a wide variety of approaches - from the radical alternative of new connectionist models, through new developments in traditional symbolic approaches, to the reemphasis on linguistic concepts as a crucial input to psycholinguistic models. Chapters are organized in sections covering psychological models of lexical processing, the nature of the input, lexical structure and process, and parsing and interpretation. William Marslen-Wilson is a Senior Scientist at the Medical Research Council Applied Psychology Unit in Cambridge, England.

"A comprehensive look at recent theoretical and experimental work in word recognition and word retrieval... [that] will provide a primary reference point for the next few years of research on lexical processing. " Merrill F. Garrett , University of Arizona
