THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE. Haverford College. Psychology Fall Marilyn Boltz. Office: Sharpless Email: [email protected] and Mind (Cambridge University Press, ) and On Nature and Language .. philosophy or psychology of language, there was then little doubt that although. has been that linguistics is a branch of cognitive psychology. On this view, . aims at providing theories of natural languages; cognitive psychology aims.
These modulates have limited interaction with one another. For example, one influential theory of sentence processing, the garden-path theory,  states that syntactic analysis takes place first. Under this theory as the reader is reading a sentence, he or she creates the simplest structure possible in order to minimize effort and cognitive load. This is done without any input from semantic analysis or context-dependent information.
Hence, in the sentence "The evidence examined by the lawyer turned out to be unreliable," by the time the reader gets to the word "examined" he or she has committed to a reading of the sentence in which the evidence is examining something because it is the simplest parse.
This commitment is made despite the fact that it results in an implausible situation; we know from experience that evidence can rarely if ever examine something. Under this "syntax first" theory, semantic information is processed at a later stage.

It is only later that the reader will recognize that he or she needs to revise the initial parse into one in which "the evidence" is being examined. In this example, readers typically recognize their misparse by the time they reach "by the lawyer" and must go back and re-parse the sentence.
In contrast to a modular account, an interactive theory of sentence processing, such as a constraint-based lexical approach  assumes that all available information contained within a sentence can be processed at any time. Under an interactive account, for example, the semantics of a sentence such as plausibility can come into play early on in order to help determine the structure of a sentence.
Hence, in the sentence above, the reader would be able to make use of plausibility information in order to assume that "the evidence" is being examined instead of doing the examining.
There are data to support both modular and interactive accounts; which account is the correct one is still up for debate. Main article: Language production Language production concerns how people produce language, either in written or spoken form, in a way that conveys meanings comprehensible to others.
One of the most effective ways to explain the way people represent meanings using rule-governed languages is by observing and analyzing instances of speech errors.
They include speech dysfluencies like false starts, repetition, reformulation and constant pauses in between words or sentences; also, slips of tongue, like blendings, substitutions, exchanges e. Spoonerism , and various pronunciation errors. Rather, their language faculty is constantly tapped during the speech production process.
This is accounted for by the limitation of the working memory. In particular, errors involving exchanges imply that one plans ahead in their sentence but only about significant ideas e. In addition, perhaps this interest in our historical past suggests that psycholinguistics is at a critical stage in its development.
There are many scholars who believe that this critical stage manifests itself primarily in a search for a new paradigm.
This book as such reflects a wide-ranging search for historical roots over a millenium of research in the psychology of language and thought. Furthermore, it also reflects an attempt to open the context by introducing the broader perspectives of the history of ideas and the history of science together with their reassessment of the method of science motivated from within psychology itself.

Sort order. I read the 4th edition of this book. The book is probably too technical and moves too fast for the general public, but for college students it is an excellent introduction to Psycholinguistics or the Psychology of Language.
Carroll explores and explains several facets of the field and related fields, starting from well-accepted common ground and getting quickly into disputed territory. This book covers all the major areas of the field and provides clear and balanced accounts of the history of th I read the 4th edition of this book.

While this isn't my specialty, I haven't come across anything that this book didn't touch on and prepare me for, so it was very helpful as an introduction. Even if you don't study the Psychology of Language, this book is helpful for its relation to learning, cognition, and linguistics. Even considering it's density and difficulty, I would strongly recommend it before any other "pop" science books I have found on the topic.
Carroll is far more neutral and is not "selling" any perspective or ideas, nor does he demonize any theories.
I've got the edition. I guess it was quite ok to read. Even for someone who's native language isn't english.
