A Psycholinguistics Report on Genie
April 9, 2012
Discovered in November 1970, Genie is presumably the most thoroughly researched case history of a feral child. From ages 2 and a half to 13 and a half, Genie’s father isolated her to a room...

I. Background of Study
Language is a very important aspect for human life because it is means of communication that can help people share ideas, wants, and anything else. Carrol (2008, p. 3) stated...
these research questions are related to the larger issues raised in the introduction.
Describe what specific claim, hypothesis, and/or model of psycholinguistics you will evaluate with these questions.
Explain what it will show about the psychology of language if your hypothesis is confirmed.

were postulated by linguists (Fodor et al. 1974). As the field of psycholinguistics developed, it became clear that theories of sentence comprehension and production cannot be based in any simple way on linguistic theories; psycholinguistic theories must consider the properties of the human mind as well...

What we can take from Ali’s view was that he wanted reading to be enjoyable and one with meaning. The whole language approach based on the psycholinguistic perspective was advocated by Noam Chomsky (1965) who stated that: humans have an innate predisposition to learn a language”. His pedagogy argues...
Psycholinguistic peculiarities of oral speech
Psycholinguistic or psychology of language is the study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enables humans to acquire, use and comprehend and produce language. Psycholinguistics covers the cognitive processes that make it possible...

The causes of changes are generally divided by linguists into two broad categories. On the one hand, there are internal psycholinguistic factors, that is, linguistic and psychological ones which reside in the structure of the language and in the minds of speakers. On the other hand...

early immersion in a second language can facilitate a child's second language learning by taking advantage of his or her special neurolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and cognitive capacities to learn language (Genesee 1984; Lambert, 1984 cited in Lindholm, 1992).
