Language has always been seen as a cornerstone of human intelligence yet psycholinguistics only became a recognized branch of psychology 35 years ago. At the outset it was mainly concerned with testing theories developed in linguistics following Chomsky's revolution, but since then it has become a discipline in its own right, forming a central component of cognitive science. This book is concerned with what happens when we process language - what mental operations occur during processing and how they are organized over time. It gives an account of these developments both as they relate to experimental studies of processing and as they relate to computational modeling of the processes. There are chapters covering core topics such as lexical processing, syntactic parsing and the comprehension of discourse, as well as special topics which have recently attracted interest, such as the role of morphology, reference and prosody in processing. Recent advances in the study of dialogue and psychological semantics are also discussed.

Industry Reviews

""This volume contains some excellent, and much-needed, reviews of certain topics in language processing.the editors have done a good job of identifying a niche which certainly required filling....I found that several of the chapters in this collection were useful for my own work, and welcome this addition to the literature." -Gerry Altmann, University of York."
