Abstract and Keywords
Psycholinguistics—a blend of psychology and linguistics—is the scientific study of the mental processes underpinning our ability to acquire, produce, and comprehend language. This article focuses on two general strands of research that will give a rough idea about the present-day psycholinguistic enterprise: language comprehension and language production. It first gives a brief presentation of each of these. It then describes the research techniques used in psycholinguistics, followed by a presentation of the major issues driving research in the field. Third, it summarizes the specific questions that Arabic raises for psycholinguistic research and concludes with some remarks about the future of psycholinguistics.
