Written by a professional researcher and writer, Julie Sedivy’s Language in Mind: An Introduction to Psycholinguistics, 2nd Edition, (PDF) offers an exceptionally accessible introduction to the perplexing task of learning psycholinguistic research, theory, and application. Providing a research-based approach-supported by the new “Researchers at Work” feature which demonstrates the process of conducting an experiment Language in Mind stresses not just what psycholinguists know, but how they’ve come to know it. To deepen the student’s exposure to scientific thinking and research, which is an important skill in follow-up courses, the textbook also includes a probing examination of primary literature and the discussions in the field (supported by the in-text “Digging Deeper” feature, and online with “Language at Large” modules and Web Activities). To complete the study of psycholinguistics, the ebook establishes relations between theory and everyday phenomena (supported by “Questions to Contemplate” and Boxes features). A robust 4-color illustration program distinguishes this ebook from others, and further explains and shows challenging material.
