Where does language come from? Is language restricted to humans? How do children acquire language so quickly? Why are Noam Chomsky's theories of language so influential - and is he right?
A classic in its field for almost forty years, The Articulate Mammal is a brilliant introduction to psycholinguistics. In lucid prose Jean Aitchison introduces and demystifies the fundamentals of psycholinguistics: the possibility of a a language genea (TM);
post-Chomskyan theories of language; language within an evolutionary framework;
how children become acclimatized to speech rhythms before birth; the acquisition of verbs; construction and cognitive grammar; and aphasia and dementia.
This Routledge Classics edition includes a new foreword by the author.
