AMKersh Posted March 27, 2014 Share Posted March 27, 2014 (edited) Hey everyone! This might seem like a random question, but from my own experience I have found that many people who are interested in speech and language are also somehow involved in music (vocal and/or instrumental). They are certainly related in a number of different ways! Practically speaking, both of them involve very specific attention to details of sound production and perception, both involve a somewhat arbitrary, rule-governed system with different types of conventions across styles/cultures, and I always felt there was a similarity between phonetic and musical transcription! This is definitely a research area that I'm very interested in, so I figured I'd start here and see how many of you were musically involved! I play mainly fiddle/violin, but also some cello, mandolin, guitar, piano. And I'm ALWAYS singing. I come from a very musical immediate family as well - we are all multi-instrumentalists. Also, additional question - how many of you are bilingual? Looking forward to hearing from you! Edited March 27, 2014 by AMKersh *Quinn* 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
