This Special Issue on Connectionist Models of Human Language Processing
provides an opportunity for an appraisal both of specific connectionist
models and of the status and utility of connectionist models of language in
general. This introduction provides the background for the papers in the
Special Issue. The development of connectionist models of language is
traced, from their intellectual origins, to the state of current research. Key
themes that arise throughout different areas of connectionist psycholinguis-
tics are highlighted, and recent developments in speech processing, mor-
phology, sentence processing, language production, and reading are de-
scribed. We argue that connectionist psycholinguistics has already had a
significant impact on the psychology of language, and that connectionist
models are likely to have an important influence on future research.
