Written for those who would like to know why we talk, how we acquire language and what happens when we produce or comprehend sentences, this book is an introduction to the subject of psycholinguistics. Major topics of interest in recent years and a state-of-the-art examination are included. This edition has added sections on Chomsky's recent views, which differ markedly from those of 20 years ago.
