This dissertation investigates the potential of a discrimination learning approach to language processes across three different experimental tasks (word naming, compound reading in natural discourse and primed picture naming) and three different measures of language processing (reaction times, eye movements and event-related potentials). The work presented here demonstrates that discrimination learning offers a competitive approach to language processing as compared to traditional psycholinguistic models and analysis techniques.
