What is neurolinguistics? It is the study of the neural mechanisms in the human brain that control the comprehension, production, and acquisition of language. Neurolinguists studies the physiological mechanisms by which the brain processes information related to language
Interactions with other fields As an interdisciplinary field, neurolinguistics draws methodology and theory from fields such as neuroscience, linguistics, cognitive science, neurobiology, communication disorders, neuropsychology, and computer science.
Neurolinguistics research is carried out in all the major areas of linguistics Research questions in Subfield Description neurolinguistics how the brain extracts speech sounds fromPhonetics the study of speech sounds an acoustic signal, how the brain separates speech sounds from background noise how the phonological system the study of how sounds arePhonology of a particular language is organized in a language represented in the brain the study of how words are how the brain stores andMorphology andlexicology structured and stored in accesses words that a person the mental lexicon knows the study of how multiple- how the brain combinesSyntax word utterances are words into constituents and constructed sentences; how structural and the study of how meaning is semantic information is usedSemantics encoded in language in understanding sentences
Topics considered Neurolinguistics researchinvestigates several topics, including where language information isprocessed, how language processing unfolds over time, how brain structures are related to language acquisition and learning, and how neurophysiology can contribute to speech and language pathology.
Neurolinguistics takes into account: Localizations of language processes Time course of language processes Language acquisition Language pathology
Neurolinguistics and language teaching NLP The NLP model explains how weprocess information which comes tous from the outside and is based on the work of Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who initially recognized the importance of eyecontact and movement in identifying emotional states and how (rather than what) individuals think.
NLP INCLUDES:It encompasses or is related to left / right brain functions, visual / auditory / kinaesthetic learningstyles, multiple intelligence and other areas of research which are attempting to identify modes of learning whilst recognising the importance of the individual learner.
