For junior/senior-level courses in Psycholinguistics and The Psychology of Language.A comprehensive survey of classic and cutting edge research, this text shows how people comprehend, produce, and acquire language-and represents how powerful language processes are, and the importance of language in everyday life. It looks at emotional aspects of language processing in social contexts, and extends beyond the usual emphasis on structural aspects of language to include pragmatic and functional forces-demonstrating not just "what language is" but also "what language does."
