Word recognition is the component of reading which involves the identification of individual words. Together the two volumes of Visual Word Recognition offer a state-of-the-art overview of contemporary research from leading figures in the field.
This first volume outlines established theory, new models and key experimental evidence used to investigate visual word recognition: lexical decision and word naming. It also considers methodological concerns: new developments in large databases, and how these have been applied to theoretical questions; and control considerations when dealing with words as stimuli. The second volume examines how research on word recognition has been linked to the study of concepts and meaning, such as how morphemes affect word recognition, how the meaning of words affects their processing and the effect of priming on the processing of words.
The two volumes serve as a state-of-the-art, comprehensive overview of the field. They are essential reading for researchers of visual word recognition, and students on undergraduate and postgraduate courses in cognition and cognitive psychology, specifically the psychology of language and reading. They will also be of use to those working in education and speech-language therapy.

"Influential researchers provide state-of-the-art reviews of topics that have traditionally received relatively little attention. There are also welcome updates on more well-studied domains, which faithfully chronicle what has already been done, and provides useful roadmaps that guide future research." - Melvin Yap, Assistant Professor of Psychology, National University of Singapore
"Both volumes of Visual Word Recognition will serve as a crucial, up-to-date theoretical and experimental aid for young and experienced scientists in the field of reading research." - Nicola Pitchford, Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Nottingham, UK
