Inner Speech: Development, Cognitive Functions, Phenomenology, and Neurobiology.

Alderson-Day B, Fernyhough C - Psychol Bull (2015)

Bottom Line: Despite a growing body of knowledge on its phenomenology, development, and function, approaches to the scientific study of inner speech have remained diffuse and largely unintegrated.We conclude by considering prospects for an integrated cognitive science of inner speech, and present a multicomponent model of the phenomenon informed by developmental, cognitive, and psycholinguistic considerations.Despite its variability among individuals and across the life span, inner speech appears to perform significant functions in human cognition, which in some cases reflect its developmental origins and its sharing of resources with other cognitive processes.

fig2: A multicomponent model of inner speech, incorporating developmental, working memory, and psycholinguistic features.

Mentions: If the core of inner speech is considered as an abstract code containing a combination of semantic, syntactic, and phonological information, one way to account for its apparent varieties is to think about that “kernel” or abstract code being unpacked in different ways, depending on the recruitment of additional cognitive resources. An “utterance” in inner speech could be articulated to a greater or lesser degree, depending on the relative deployment of speech motor processes. In the case of greater articulatory involvement, inner speech would resemble something akin to an “inner voice,” which would usually correspond to the speaker’s own. According to working memory models, continued rehearsal of the inner speech utterance via the phonological loop would keep the trace maintained in an “inner ear” (see Figure 2).
