The Oxford Handbook of Language Production provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary review of the complex mechanisms involved in language production. It describes what we know of the computational, linguistic, cognitive, and brain basis of human language production - from how we conceive the messages we aim to convey, to how we retrieve the right (and sometimes wrong) words, how we form grammatical sentences, and how we assemble and articulate individual sounds. Contributions from leading psycholinguists, cognitive linguists, and neuroscientists offer readers a broad perspective on the latest research, highlighting key investigations into core aspects of human language processing. The Handbook is organized into three sections: speaking, written and sign languages, and how language production interfaces with the wider cognitive system, including control processes, memory, non-linguistic gestures, and the perceptual system. These chapters discuss a wide array of levels of representation, from sentences to individual words, speech sounds and articulatory gestures, extending to discourse and the broader social context of speaking. Detailed supporting chapters provide an overview of key issues in linguistic structure at each level of representation. Authoritative yet concisely written, the volume will be of interest to scholars and students working in cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, audiology, and education, and related fields.

About the author: 

Matthew Goldrick is Associate Professor of Linguistics at Northwestern University, where he is affiliated with the Northwestern Cognitive Science Program and the Northwestern University Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program. His research draws on behavioral experiments as well as computational and mathematical modeling to develop theories of the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying the production, perception, and acquisition of sound structure. ; Victor Ferreira is Professor of Psychology and Associate Director of the Center for Research in Language at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Ferreira's research focuses on language production and communication. Specific research questions center on how speakers form sentences, how speakers retrieve and produce individual words, and how the knowledge that speakers and listeners have of one another affects language production behavior.; Michele Miozzo is Assistant Research Professor at Johns Hopkins and has held positions at Columbia University and the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on the organization of the brain mechanisms supporting word production in speaking, a topic he investigates with individuals with acquired language impairments and neuroimaging techniques.
