MEDIA REVIEWS
This textbook is modern, thorough, witty, and deeply instructive. At last, students of the psychology of language (in the classroom and out) have a book they'll value and enjoy. - Victor Ferreira, University of California, San Diego This is the psycholinguistics textbook we've all been waiting for. Traxler has brought us into the 21st century. He surveys the field with depth, breadth, and most definitely wit. Students will find the text quite accessible, and instructors will appreciate the rigorous content. - Morton Ann Gernsbacher, University of Wisconsin-Madison It's all here, from Nim to Noam, and "the horse raced past the barn" to the elephant in Groucho's pants. Traxler covers the subject matter of modern psycholinguistics with thoroughness and panache. - Mark S. Seidenberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison Engaging and witty, this is a refreshing and informative textbook on the psychology of language that will appeal to students and teachers alike. - Gerry Altmann, University of York
