Abstract:

Melodies, Rhythm and Cognition in Foreign Language Learning is a collection of
essays reflecting on the relationship between language and music, two unique,
innate human capacities. This book provides a clear explanation of the
centrality of melodies and rhythm to foreign language learning acquisition.
The interplay between language music brings to applied linguists inquiries
into the nature and function of speech melodies, the role of prosody and the
descriptions of rhythmical patterns in verbal behaviour. Musical students seem
to be better equipped for language learning, although melodies and rhythm can
benefit all types of students at any age. In fact, in this book melodies and
rhythm are considered to be a springboard for the enhancement of the learning
of foreign languages.
