SPEECH ERRORS IN LANGUAGE PRODUCTION
Slips of the tongue provide a valuable window into the processes involved in language production. They are also closely related to the action slips examined in Chapter 7 of your course text, Cognitive Psychology. For this discussion:
- Describe at least three categories of speech errors, giving an example of each.
- Discuss the explanations given for these types of speech errors.
- Give an example or two of such speech errors you have experienced in your life and explain why you think they happened.
Please include the following in your response:
- Refer to and integrate ideas presented in the text and any supplemental readings.
- Cite outside resources if necessary to make your point.
- Follow APA style guidelines for citations and references.
You will be evaluated on how well you demonstrate your understanding of the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned readings, discussions, and independent investigations. You will also be evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers the questions asked.
