use psycholinguistic in a sentence.
And yep, there's a whole sub-discipline of psycholinguistics which definitely learns from things like speech pathologies.
My first encounter with his works was The Language Instinct, which was required reading for a course I took on psycholinguistics.
My psycholinguistics prof at uni was fond of saying that the more factors one considers the more likely you are to find spurious correlations.
Saying that it takes you longer to parse the sentence is anecdotal nonsense, because there’s no way for you to measure that without doing a controlled psycholinguistics experiment.
As I said in the other version of this:Psycholinguistics research has repeatedly shown that the amount of influence is minimal, amounting to, in general, forcing you to pay attention to certain aspects of the world more so when you're describing using language than when you're thinking about things in other ways.
It seems clear that both theistic religions and human personality cults take advantage of a bug in our mental OS that shuts down our critical faculties in the presence of authority figures who adopt a certain psycholinguistic posture.
