Language and Music as Cognitive Systems

Justin London

Oxford University Press

This chapter adds more comments to Chapter 22. It is sceptical of the chapter's proposal. It argues that the syntax of music and language are fundamentally different, and that music is not ‘syntactic’ in the way that language is. It then discusses the implications of this view for the chapter's resource sharing framework.

Keywords:   music, language, syntactic, resource sharing
