Varieties of musical experience

Jamshed J. Bharucha, Meagan Curtis, Kaivon Paroo
2006 Cognition  
In this paper, we argue that music cognition involves the use of acoustic and auditory codes to evoke a variety of conscious experiences.  ...  Music is best understood as a form of communication in which formal codes (acoustic patterns and their auditory representations) are employed to elicit a variety of conscious experiences.  ...  The authors thank the guest editor Isabelle Peretz for her editorial work, and Eric Clarke, Daniel Dennett, Ray Jackendoff, and Fred Lerdahl for valuable comments on earlier drafts.  ...

Précis of Foundations of language: brain, meaning, grammar, evolution

Ray Jackendoff
2003 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
However, generative grammar was mistaken in assuming that the syntactic component is the sole course of combinatoriality, and that everything else is "interpretive."  ...  The proper approach is a parallel architecture, in which phonology, syntax, and semantics are autonomous generative systems linked by interface components.  ...  Each beat is associated with a syllable; the strength of a beat indicates the relative stress on that syllable, so that in Figure 2 the first syllable of apple receives maximum stress.  ...

Alternation preferences and focus marking [article]

Nadja Schauffler, Universität Stuttgart
2021
In view of the results obtained from this thesis, I conclude that: (i) the preference for alternation can influence the prosodic marking of focus and is a source for variation in the realisation of information-structure  ...  The general aim of this thesis is to investigate whether alternation preferences are found at the sentence accent level, and whether they interfere with the prosodic marking of focus.  ...  Rhythmic well-formedness is, however, not only about the regular occurrence of beats, but according to Jun (2012) refers to the temporal organisation of speech by the regular occurrence of events in  ...

An electrophysiological investigation of construction processing in the healthy, aphasic, and modelled human brain [article]

Guglielmo Lucchese, Universitätsbibliothek Der FU Berlin, Universitätsbibliothek Der FU Berlin
2018
The first is that retrieval of stored information and combination thereof must occur from the very beginning of language understanding in a parallel and highly integrated fashion.  ...  Assuming that linguistic information is stored and combined in the brain in form of groups of neurons bound together by links of different strength leads to some key predictions.  ...  The full formal specification of the model is provided in the Appendix at the end of this dissertation. 104 During speech production, patterns of neural activity co-occur in primary motor and auditory  ...
