The MA Psycholinguistics provides students with a thorough grounding in research from the perspective of linguistics on human language processing, the representation of language in the brain, and first and second language acquisition. This course will cover the processing and acquisition of sounds, words and sentences, look at different kinds of language disorders, and investigate the relevance of data from human language processing to our understanding of the nature of language. It combines a wide range of methodologies: corpora, infant behavioural studies at the babylab, response time and eye movement measures for adults. Students can choose areas of special study including: How words are represented and accessed in the mind; How speakers understand sentences in real time; Music, language and the brain; Children’s English.
