Psychology of Language explores the cognitive and neural bases of human language. We use language in our everyday lives mostly eortlessly and without thinking. But underneath it all, language is extraordinarily complex. In this course, through lectures, reading, writing, and discussion, we will explore some of the feats and challenges of human language including (but not limited to):

  • Components of language such as speech perception, speech production, reading, writing
  • Whether language is a uniquely human and innate ability
  • How children develop the ability to speak and understand language
  • How language functions in the brain
  • The relationship between language and thought
  • What happens when language does not function typically
