Summary

This text focuses on the use of computer simulation models in cognitive approaches to human language processing. A substantial range of computer models is presented and compared. The characteristic focus points of current trends in psycholinguistics are all covered. Firstly, psycholinguistics has a strong computational element and computer models can no longer be ignored in the description of important psycholinguistic theory. Secondly, the research area has recently seen a clash between the established "symbolic" view and the more recent "subsymbolic" connectionist approach to psycholinguistics. Thirdly, psycholinguistics has become an area of research that can be viewed as multidisciplinary, where co-operation takes place with researchers in linguistics as well as more diverse fields such as computer science, engineering, biophysics and philosophy.
