Computational methods have become increasingly important to the study of the psychology of language as a way of gaining insights into the psychological processes involved in language acquisition, processing and evolution.  They provide rigorous tools for testing and exploring specific hypotheses about the nature of language and its psychological underpinnings.  In this course, we survey the state of the art in computational psycholinguistics, ranging from corpus analyses of child-directed speech and politicians' speeches, to Bayesian and connectionist models of language.
