About PsychLing Mental Language Inventory (MLI)

The PsychLing MLI from Psycholinguistics.org, or Mental Language Inventory, provides a comprehensive inventory of words and phrases related to mental activity and other psychological processes. All entries are related to mental language, or psychological processes like thinking, feeling, perception, and sensation. The entries are conveniently organized by Language Family, Language, Script Family, Script, and other factors.
