Music and Language Development in Early Childhood: Integrating Past Research in the Two Domains.
Chen-Hafteck, Lily
Early Child Development and Care, v130 p85-97 Mar 1997
Examines the link between music and language development in early childhood. Investigates three aspects in developmental processes: (1) early sound perception; (2) premusical and prelinguistic vocalization; and (3) the emergence of singing and speech. Discusses linguistic and musical environmental stimulation such as baby talk and lullabies. Maintains that music and language are distinguishable only during later developmental stages. (Author/KB)
