Words and Minds : How We Use Language to Think Together, Paperback Book

Words and Minds : How We Use Language to Think Together Paperback


Words and Minds takes a lively and accessible look at how we use language to combine our mental resources and get things done.

Examining everyday language and drawing on a wide range of research, but always with a light style, Neil Mercer provides a unified account of the relationship between thought and language.

Mercer analyses real-life examples of language being used effectively, or otherwise, in many different settings, including workplaces and schools, the home, the internet and the courtroom, and offers practical insights into how we might improve our communication skills.

Words and Minds will appeal to anyone interested in language and the psychology of everyday life.
