Routledge Language Workbooks provide absolute beginners with practical introductions to core areas of language study. Books in the series offer comprehensive coverage of the area as well as a basis for further investigation. Each Language Workbook guides the reader through the subject using 'hands-on' language analysis, equipping them with the basic analytical skills needed to handle a wide range of data. Written in a clear and simple style, with all technical concepts fully explained, Language Workbooks can be used for independent study or as part of a taught class.

'This book is a very useful text that introduces key concepts and findings in psycholinguistics. The text covers the core areas from biological aspects of language to language acquisition and language processing, and should encourage students to delve more deeply into all of these areas. I recommend it very highly.' - Professor Martin Pickering, University of Edinburgh, UK
