Introduction to Psycholinguistics - PSY238

This unit introduces a psychological perspective into the study of language. We explore models of the perceptual and cognitive processes that are involved in acquiring and using linguistic knowledge, considering evidence from typical language users and people with language disorders. Specific topics include: word recognition and understanding; sentence comprehension; language production; aphasia; skilled reading and reading development; acquired and developmental reading disorders; acquired spelling disorders; and first language acquisition.
