Title: Musik und Sprachprosodie [Music and Speech Prosody]
Subtitle: Kindgerichtetes Singen im frühen Spracherwerb
Written By: Simone Falk
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=9783110219890
Series Title: Language, Context and Cognition 9
Description:

This study is the first to examine the prosodic structure of everyday sung
language and its relevance for language acquisition. Using extensive authentic
recordings in German, Russian and French, the author demonstrates how
language and music interact with each other and how singing promotes small
children's acquisition of language. The book provides far-reaching insights into
the interfaces of language and music, and is thus of interdisciplinary relevance.
In addition, it offers entry-points into language acquisition research, speech
therapy and language typology.
