Thought you all might be interested in this -- I'm reading Susanne Langer
now, who as you know influenced Percy's language theory greatly, and she
talks about music (as well as art and ritual) as symbolic language.  The
brief discussion at the e-link below links music and language together, and
refers to the FOXP2 gene as well...the "sidebar" box recommends further



Subject: How Music REALLY Works - comparing language and music

Hi Karey,

Here is the link to the paper on understanding music
that compares our human brain's biological processing
of language with music.

"How Music REALLY Works" Sections
1.1 The Biological "Sense" of Language and "Sense" of
Music; and
1.2 Words + Music . . . 1 + 1 = 3.


If the link gets mangled in email, just go to
http://www.completechords.com and click the link
_How_Music_Really_Works_ in the left column.

Enjoy, Jeff
