The unique interdisciplinary approach, which is reflected in the various topics covered, gives students a global picture of the field.

Important developing areas such as cognitive aging, creativity, the social and cultural context perspective, communication disorders and sentence processing are also covered within the volume. This text is aimed towards undergraduate courses and graduate courses in psycholinguistics, especially those with an emphasis on bilingualism or second language learning.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Excellent book! It covers the field to some of its remotest corners ... In my opinion the chapters are well organized, very well written, very accessible, and very informative. Key concepts are very well explained. There are detailed discussions of research designs, and the effects these can have on research outcomes, statistical methods, and the meaning of the outcomes. This is the perfect textbook for undergraduate and graduate students across the world. The book offers a wide overview of the field, but it is clearly geared towards students of psychology." - Jean-Marc Dewaele, Birkbeck, University of London, School of Languages, Linguistics, & Culture, UK
