Review of the book Slavic languages in psycholinguistics: Chances and challenges for empirical and experimental research by T. Anstatt, A. Gattnar, and C Clasmeier, (eds)

Journal of Slavic Linguistics. 2020. Vol. 28. No. 2. P. 183-192.

This book is a result of the workshop on empirical psycholinguistic methods, "Slavic languages in the black box", which aimed to create a space for discussion of methodological problems in the field of Slavic psycholinguistics. The current volume goes beyond simple discussion. In 12 different contributions, it 1) offers an overview of the existing experimental designs, online and offline methods of investigation as well as various tasks that are employed in modern Slavic psycholinguistics research, 2) presents the key issues associated with these designs and methods, and, crucially, 3) suggests possible solutions to overcome the challenges. In the review I briefly outline the content, summarize the takeaway message and provide a short review for each contribution of the volume. I conclude with a general evaluation of the book.
