The Song Stuck in My Head Phenomenon: A Melodic Din in the LAD?
Murphey, Tim
System, v18 n1 p53-64 1990
Focuses on the relationship between involuntary verbal rehearsal, Piaget's egocentric speech, Vygotsky's inner speech, and the song stuck in my head phenomena. It is hypothesized that song may act as a Language Acquisition Device (LAD) activator or be a strategy of the LAD in the ontogenetic development of language. (28 references) (Author/VWL)
