Recommends it for: those who love torture
Recommended to Heather by: Class Book for my psycholinguitics class
Shelves: language
This class and book helped me to realize why I never ever want to get a Master's or more in the field of Linguistics. I love language, but not on a theoretical science aspect view aka field study. My brain did not have the capacity to keep up with the class even though we had the best professor ever teaching it and the book was just horrible...I might as well have been reading Greek...I definitely took on more than I could chew, but thankfully my Prof. took pity on me and really helped me scrape ...more

A very nice and readable introduction into the field of psycholinguistics. I had just a slight idea what it is all about, now I feel like reading more academic texts. I learnt a few interesting facts and found this branch of linguistics very inspiring.

although I wanted to finish the whole book , but an alternative one came late , anyway this book has the most important theories and so so so simple

I had to read this book for my psycholinguistics master class and it was helpful though I was familiar with most of the issues adressed in the book.

Revelador para lectores no familiarizados con la lingüística. A veces confuso en términos técnicos, sin embargo siempre claro en los conceptos.
