Psycholinguistics - UiL OTS
This elementary to intermediate level course will provide the student with a basic knowledge of psycholinguistics, a research domain on the intersection of linguistics, psychology and neuroscience. Three major research topics in psycholinguistics will be presented: language comprehension, language production and (first) language acquisition. In addition, we will discuss language disorders, both acquired (aphasia) and innate (developmental language disorder; dyslexia).
This course focuses on the psycholinguistic endeavour of mapping out the learning and cognitive mechanisms that allow humans to pick up patterns and regularities in linguistic input, and that might thus support the process of language acquisition. We will focus on: (i) recognizing words and understanding sentences; (ii) producing spoken language; (iii) brain damage and aphasia; (iv) language acquisition in the first 4 years of life; (v) developmental language disorder and dyslexia.
This course is offered by the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS, the home of linguistic and communications research at Utrecht University. This is an online course. More information can be found here
