Introduction
Language processing is an activity were
busy with virtually every day, every time
we engage in reading, speaking, or listening
to speech.
Occasionally we strain to search for a word
or find the right turn of phrase, or
understand what somebody else has said,
but usually language processing happens
effortlessly and completely subconsciously.

0. Introduction
We are never aware of the actual
mechanisms and operations involved in
producing and understanding language.
Yet, there are many mysteries involved in
even the simplest use of speech.

E.g. a toddler points to an animal at the zoo
and you answer ‘tigers!
How did you come up with that word so
quickly from among the many thousands in our
vocabularies?
Assuming the word is stored in our brains, is it
stored whole or in pieces?
How do we know we have the right word once
we have selected it?
If we make a mistake, why are we more likely
to say ‘lions! rather than chairs!’
