Abstract / Description of output

We discuss two limitations of Hickok's account. First, we propose that ideas from motor control and planning should be brought wholesale into psycholinguistics so that processing at every level of the linguistic hierarchy (from concepts to sounds) should be recast in terms of forward model predictions and implementation. Second, we argue that motor involvement can sometimes enhance perception. We conclude that our account is consistent with a dual route model of comprehension in which different routes to prediction can interact.
