Blog Week 1 - January 17th
In the last few classes, we dove into the subject of Psycholinguistics by first looking at it's history and concepts. We then moved onto thought and language. I liked the comparisons that were made between different languages and cultures, it lead to interesting class discussions. We also learned how important language is to the thought processes themselves. I also found the concept of relative and absolute frame of references interesting, and greatly appreciated redoing the experiment in class. Though the in class participant didn't behave as would have been expected, it really helped bring the concept to life. I really enjoy practical examples of the subject matter.
