The Handbook of Psycholinguistics, in one volume, provides a single source, state of the art review of the many subdisciplines in this area. Written by the leading experts in the field, each chapter provides both depth and breadth in covering dynamic research findings on the acquisition, perception, and comprehension of language. Now in its third decade of existence, the field has never before had a comprehensive reference source. The handbook discusses research, theory, and methodology, while never compromising the unique integration of psychology and linguistics fundamental to this field.

Presents a broad and deep overview of what psychologists have accomplished in the past couple of decades in understanding how language works... It summarizes an amazingly large body of experimental research very clearly, within a framework that lets readers decide that they know more about how words are read than they did before they read the chapter. --Charles Clifton, Jr., the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
