Overview
"This is a phenomenal textbook. Julie Sedivy writes with incredible clarity about the still relatively murky field of psycholinguistics. All the main areas of psycholinguistics are very accessibly covered." --Judith Degen, Stanford University "It's by far the best textbook on this subject. Sedivy's research background and her skills as a science writer make a great combination." --Adele Goldberg, Princeton University "Language in Mind is an introductory textbook that provides a broad perspective on psycholinguistics in an engaging and accessible way. I highly recommend it to both instructors and students who are looking for a good starting point for psycholinguistics or language science." --Heeju Hwang, The Quarterly Review of Biology "Designed as an undergraduate textbook, Language in Mind: An Introduction to Psycholinguistics is an essential handbook for navigating the sea of text, images, and sound that comprise our communication environment. Sedivy describes herself as having an 'incurable infatuation with language', which is energetically transmitted through Language in Mind, instantiating psycholinguistics as a course that many universities will now want to offer. Overall, the daunting complexities of brain and communication research are approached in a clear and instructive manner. Sedivy encourages readers to critically assess the experimental methods that produced our current knowledge, pushing students to devise their own methods to test hypotheses as well as providing model after model of how to determine the parameters and limitations of an experiment. It would be a joy to teach using this book." --Gwyneth Sutherlin, London School of Economics and Political Science book review
