"A fine collection, containing important new proposals nicely blended with background information to form a lively and informative survey of recent research on a variety of topics centering around the question of how linguistic information is acquired, represented, and used." -- Contemporary Psychology "This superb collection of nine important papers by some of the most interesting thinkers in linguistics and psychology covers a wide variety of topics, from syntactic theory, to process models, to neurolinguistics, to language acquisition. However, even within this diversity, there are several common threads woven through many of the papers that suggest where much of the future research on the psychology of language will take place. Three topics repeatedly discussed are the lexicon, task specificity, and the relation between linguistic and conceptual knowledge." -- American Scientist "This collection of nine papers, all appearing for the first time... represents a reevaluation of some of the basic tenets of transformational grammar theory in response to the issue of psychological reality, and it offers some observations about real language behavior that relate to this problem." -- The Linguistic Reporter Printed Pages: 350.
