*30 of the field's foremost experts have contributed to this edition
*An invaluable single-source reference


With Psycholinguistics in its fifth decade of existence, the second edition of the Handbook of Psycholinguistics represents a comprehensive survey of psycholinguistic theory, research and methodology, with special emphasis on the very best empirical research conducted in the past decade. Thirty leading experts have been brought together to present the reader with both broad and detailed current issues in Language Production, Comprehension and Development.

The handbook is an indispensible single-source guide for professional researchers, graduate students, advanced undergraduates, university and college teachers, and other professionals in the fields of psycholinguistics, language comprehension, reading, neuropsychology of language, linguistics, language development, and computational modeling of language. It will also be a general reference for those in neighboring fields such as cognitive and developmental psychology and education.

Quotes and reviews

"Presents a broad and deep overview of what psychologists have accomplished in the past couple of decades in understanding how language works... It summarizes an amazingly large body of experimental research very clearly, within a framework that lets readers decide that they know more about how words are read than they did before they read the chapter."
