Description

In this chapter the argument for a process and product component and the use of Mixed Research Frameworks will be considered. Key components will be identified and how we conduct study using this research framework will be discussed. In the second part of the chapter, Psycholinguistics Methods to collect and analyse data will be presented. This will include self-paced listening and reading, eye tracking, ERPs, and priming among others.
