The Handbook of East Asian Psycholinguistics 3 Volume Paperback Set
8 Oct 2015
A large body of knowledge has accumulated in recent years on the cognitive processes and brain mechanisms underlying language. Much of this knowledge has come from studies of Indo-European languages, in particular English. East Asian languages differ significantly from most Indo-European languages in their grammar, lexicon, and written and spoken forms - features which have profound implications for the learning, representation and processing of language. This set of handbooks focuses on East Asian psycholinguistics, presenting across three volumes a state-of-the-art discussion of the psycholinguistic study of Chinese, Japanese and Korean. With contributions by over fifty leading scholars, the volumes cover topics in first and second language acquisition, language processing and reading, language disorders in children and adults, and the relationships between language, brain, culture, and cognition. They will be invaluable to all scholars and students interested in East Asian languages, as well as cognitive psychologists, linguists, and neuroscientists.
