Abstract

The field of Psycholinguistics is receiving a considerable amount of attention due to its applicability in Applied Linguistics, as it is relates to the language learning process. In order to be able to able to determine how language is acquired and produced, it is necessary to understand the origins of language and those factors that play an important part in its development. Bearing in mind the above, this present work seeks to report on issues addressed in the curricular unit DCL 006 - Psycholinguistics I, one of the courses offered in the PhD Programme in Language Sciences/Language Didactics of the University of Porto, Portugal. A brief discussion ensues on important themes, materials and information presented during the course seminars, with a view to shedding light on the necessity of psycholinguistic study for language development, acquisition and production.
