Psycholinguistics is concerned with the application of linguistics to psychology. Psycholinguists view the study of human language as inseparable from the study of the workings of the brain. You will examine the most crucial issues about the interaction between the brain and language in relation to how languages are acquired, processed and stored. You will also explore the relationship between brain damage and language impairment, breakdown and loss. You will evaluate the application of various fundamental approaches in psycholinguistics to see how they account for the psychological processes underlying the production, processing and representation of human language.
