Ling 5390: Psycholinguistics

Course description

This course is an introduction to psycholinguistics, the study of how individuals comprehend, produce, and acquire language. As part of the larger field of cognitive science, psycholinguistics is an interdisciplinary field shaped by research in psychology, linguistics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and philosophy. We will primarily be concerned with questions such as: what does it mean to know a language? What are the cognitive processes involved in language use? What social rules are associated with language use? What brain mechanisms are active in language use?
