Introduction to Psycholinguistics
Language scientists attempt to answer four fundamental questions: 1. What does one know when one knows a language? 2. How does an individual access and use that knowledge when producing or understanding language? 3. How did we get this way? 4. What is the neural basis of language production and comprehension? Students will gain an appreciation for the kinds of theories that language scientists have developed to answer these questions as well as the research methods used to investigate them.
