As a composer I am interested in the tonal aspects of language: in
inflection as a means of imparting shades of meaning; and especially,
in languages where tones in and of themselves carry meaning.
Some years ago I recall reading of a Whistling Language from the
Canary Islands, used in the recent past. I would much appreciate
receiving information about recordings of *any* whistling language,
and also 'yodelling' languages (if these exist). Please respond to me
privately at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
All information received will be consolidated and posted to this list
at a later date.
