Psychology of Language
PSYC 297
Spring 2007 not offered

This course provides an examination of how people acquire, understand, and use language. We will focus on the psychological processes involved in comprehending, producing, and developing language. We will trace two broad themes: One on the development of language and another on the psycholinguist of language. We will also explore the nature of language and its neurological and social bases. It is not a course on how to teach language but many of the theories, concepts and principles covered apply to education as well as many other professional areas which we will also explore. The course will help you: become acquainted with basic concepts and knowledge of the psychology of language field; relate these concepts to understanding your own and others language development; and, understand practical issues for working with language in future careers.
