This article provides a discussion of current topics in psycholinguistics and of the current research on these problems. The author discusses current thought on the biological foundations of language and the problem of universals. If human language is a species-particular achievement contingent upon a biological endowment, there should be certain characteristics evident in all human languages. In the field of language acquisition, the author discusses the current methodological issues and theoretical perspectives, as well as semantics and syntactic development. In the area of experimental psycholinguistics, the author discusses research activities in speech perception and phonology, syntax, semantics, analysis of word meaning, uses of language, and processing in real time. A bibliography of the literature cited in the article is included. (VM)
