Primary Instructor:

This course introduces students to the cognitive processes involved in language and conversation. We will discuss aspects of language comprehension, production, and development with a special focus on what we can learn about these topics from mistakes, breakdowns, and language-related pathologies. Students will learn what is known (and what is still unknown) about how language is processed. We will use these topics to learn about the relationship between theories and hypotheses in cognitive science, and to explore a variety of state-of-the-art methods in the psychology of language.

Course Requirements:

Students complete weekly questions associated with the readings and several short analysis papers throughout the term. There is a final term paper.

Intended Audience:

An introductory background in Linguistics or in Psychology is recommended, but is not required.
