Oxford University Press

This book contributes to the study of language and music by bringing together researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines. It spans a wide range of disciplines, including archaeology, anthropology, cognitive psychology, computer science, cognitive neuroscience, education, linguistics, and musicology. The purpose is to provide a snapshot of the different research strands that have focused on language and music, to identify current trends and methodologies that have been (or could be) applied to the study of both domains, and to outline future research directions. This volume is based on an eponymous conference which was organized by the editors. It took place in Cambridge, UK, on 11–13 May 2007 and was co-hosted by the Centre for Music & Science (CMS) and the Research Centre for English & Applied Linguistics (RCEAL), both University of Cambridge. The book consists of four sections, the first chapter of each is a target article, several commentaries follow, and a response to the commentaries by the author(s) of the target article ends each section.

Keywords:   language, music, cognitive systems, current trends, methodologies
