A Resource Book for Students
'For students new to the discipline, Psycholinguistics is a well-written and accessible introduction to the field.' 'The strength of the book is the guiding questions and the reading instructions provided in each section. These guidelines serve as discerning strategies for beginners to approach psycholinguistics.' - Jyh Wee Sew, Linguistische Berichte 'This book succeeds admirably in making the complex and diverse field of psycholinguistics clear and accessible, guiding readers through basic concepts and issues and then engaging them in more focused critical reflection... An invaluable resource for students which will foster their interest in the subject.' - Ema Ushioda, University of Warwick, UK 'An excellent introduction to the complex and sometimes bewildering field of psycholinguistics, covering the central issues in a way that is both comprehensive and accessible. In short, the book fills a real gap, and I will certainly be using it on the course I teach.' - Sushie Dobbinson, York St John College, UK
