230pp, illustrations, music examples. 'How is music like language, and so what if it is? ' Using this double-barrelled question as a starting point, Joseph Swain takes us to the crossroads where the philosophy and theory of music meet the worlds of linguistics, perception, cognition, meaning and poetry. He reviews the age-old analogy between music and language in the light of the latest advances in modern linguistics and cognitive psychology, showing how this new knowledge about spoken language can explain our experience of music.
