Written in a lively, accessible style, The Psychology of Language presents a compelling focus on the relationship between language and human cognition. Each chapter offers a strong central theme, presented as a hypothesis for the student to consider. The text's three-part organization (Linguistics, Cognition, and Neuroscience), reflecting Marr's three levels of analysis (computational, representational, and implementational), helps the reader relate the material to larger issues.
