A History of Psycholinguistics

The Pre-Chomskyan Era

Willem Levelt

  • Describes the history of the field in terms of its multidisciplinary "roots" so that readers from different disciplines can concentrate on, or selectively read, the corresponding chapters.
  • Explores the history of research on brain and language, making the book valuable for aphasiologists, communication scientists and neuroscientists of language
  • Covers the history of linguistic approaches to psycholinguistics - making the book of interest to both theoretical and applied linguists.
  • Written by a scientist whose own contribution to the field has been seminal, resulting in a work that will be seen as the definitive of psycholinguistics, for many years to come.
