Auditory Imagination.
Croft, Martyn
Auditory imagination is used in this paper to describe a number of issues and activities related to sound and having to do with listening, thinking, recalling, imagining, reshaping, creating, and uttering sounds and words. Examples of auditory imagination in religious and literary works are cited that indicate a belief in an imagined, expected, or hidden world of sound that lies outside the natural or human-made sounds. A discussion of four specific issues as areas within the total domain of auditory imagination is presented to add to the understanding and appreciation of the whole. The four issues discussed are: the principle of the relationship between naming and bringing into being, the extent to which sound and oral language skills attained a degree of perfection in the ancient Greek civilization, examples of auditory imagination in the works of Shakespeare, and sound impression and oral language experiences of children as they relate to the development of auditory imagination.
