This volume represents major research issues in language production today, presenting readers with a picture of the breadth of current research in the field. Contributors have focused on models of visual word processing, aphasic speech, object recognition and language production in children. Many chapters highlight the need for psychological models of language production to learn from theoretical linguistics in order to become better informed about the structure of language itself. Therefore, this volume also includes chapters written by linguists for psychologists which serve to remind us of the complexity of structure and process in the languages of the world.

Erika Hoff's LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT, 5th Edition communicates both the content and the excitement of this quickly evolving field. By presenting a balanced treatment that examines all sides of the issues, Hoff helps readers understand different theoretical points of view-- and the research processes that have lead theorists to their findings. After an overview and history of the field, Hoff thoroughly covers the biological bases of language development and the core topics of phonological, lexical, and syntactic development. She also provides in-depth discussions of the communicative foundations of language, the development of communicative competence, language development in special populations, childhood bilingualism, and language development in the school years.

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 bases 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, letters, and gestures. Contributions from leading psycholinguists, 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.

The Neurocognition of Language Production

Over the last decades neuroscience has passed beyond mere “phrenology” and “erpology” and has become an important tool for investigating the spatial, temporal and functional brain dynamics underlying human behavior. In this Special Issue we would like to give a broad overview of recent significant contributions that neuroscientific research has provided to one of the most practiced psychomotor skills unique to humans, namely language production. Physiological studies in language production have not been as extensive compared to many other areas of human cognition and have just currently begun to generate important evidence for uncovering the cognitive mechanisms behind our ability to produce fast and efficient speech. Nonetheless, these findings have already demonstrated their scientific value and interest in neuroscientific approaches for studying language production is increasing exponentially. Therefore, we believe that a topic specially dedicated to neurocognitive advances in language production is not just in its place, but even necessary. Rather than focusing on a specific topic, the idea is to cover many of the important aspects involved in producing speech (semantics, word retrieval, syntax, phonology, motor preparation and control) gathered from various paradigms (e.g., object naming, word naming, etc.) and various populations (monolinguals, bilinguals, patients). The goal is to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the general questions being addressed in neuroscientific studies on language production, where the research stands, how these findings are of importance for understanding and constraining cognitive models and which future directions have to be taken. To this end we will invite experts in the field who have made significant contributions in the last several years to confer an important topic of language production, critically discuss neuroscientific findings on this topic, relate it to the actual behavior and cognitive models and, importantly, though novel questions which can be derived from their results and facilitate future research in the field. Hereby we hope this Research Topic will be a source of reference both for experts as novices who wish to explore the various mental operations involved in language production from a neurocognitive point of view.

This book presents a current, interdisciplinary perspective on language requisites from both a biological/comparative perspective and from a developmental/learning perspective. Perspectives regarding language and language acquisition are advanced by scientists of various backgrounds -- speech, hearing, developmental psychology, comparative psychology, and language intervention. This unique volume searches for a rational interface between findings and perspectives generated by language studies with humans and with chimpanzees. Intended to render a reconsideration as to the essence of language and the requisites to its acquisition, it also provides readers with perspectives defined by various revisionists who hold that language might be other than the consequence of a mutation unique to humans and might, fundamentally, not be limited to speech.

These volumes, part of the Cambridge Monographs and Texts in Applied Psycholinguistics, present contemporary, high-level reviews of research, theory, and practice in reading, writing, and language-learning and in disorders of first language development. Each review focuses wherever possible on the work of its author or authors. This series will help those involved in psychology, linguistics, education, and speech sciences keep abreast of major developments in the many sub-areas of applied psycholinguistics. Volumes 1 and 2 are bound together in cloth, but for greater accessibility are published separately in paper.

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Göttingen, language: English, abstract: This paper examines, whether apes share the same feature of the human language system with specials regards to Broca’s area. The human language system is unique and allows our species to understand and verbally communicate with each other. It consists of complex syntax and semantics and is rooted deeply in the brain and specific areas. The speech area of the human brain is called Broca’s area . Many neurologists and scientists did studies and researched the composition of the human and the monkey brain. Similarities as well as differences between the species were discovered which will demonstrate the relation between the human species and its early animal ancestors.
