Minor production difficulties termed slips of the tongue have been investigated as possible clues to the way our linguistic knowledge may be organised within the brain. Slips of the tongue tell us about the structure and organisation of the mental dictionary, the storage house of all the words a speaker of a language knows. This edition explains how words are stored in the mental lexicon using evidence from Shona slips of the tongue. It emphasizes that words are not stored independently in the mental lexicon, but in relation to each other. This implies that words in the mind are linked together in a gigantic multi-dimensional way, whereby every item is attached to many others. This edition proves beyond doubt that words are stored in the mental lexicon on the basis of some phonological, semantic and also syntactic information. This book will enhance our understanding of the organisation of the mental lexicon, and anyone who is interested in lexical storage will enjoy it and get a good deal of information out of it as well.
