Language in Mind

An Introduction to Psycholinguistics

Second Edition

Julie Sedivy

  • Well-crafted prose presents the material in a plot-driven way that makes the text one that students (and instructors) want to read
  • A range of simple to in-depth "fieldwork" and in-class Web Activities and Projects (supported by materials on the book's Companion Website) encourages students to work with data, to notice patterns and generalizations, and to generate hypotheses
  • Special boxes (1) provide sample stimuli and key data, to assist students in reconstructing the logic of complex experiments and (2) address specific methods implemented by researchers
  • "Language at Large" text modules relate key concepts to fascinating examples pertinent to the world outside of academia-e.g., advertising, popular culture, the law. These modules reinforce newly-learned concepts and stimulate thinking about how abstract ideas can be applied to concrete questions

New to this Edition:

  • New "Researchers at Work" features show the process of conducting an experiment, emphasizing not just what psycholinguists know, but how they've come to know it
