MUS147 PO - Linguistic Approaches to the Analysis of Music

When Offered: Spring 2021.
Instructor(s): A. Cramer
Credit: 1

The question of music’s relationship with the language faculty has not yet been well answered and continues to be vigorously studied. In exploring relationships between music and language, this course proceeds by comparing the various analytical areas of music theory and linguistics. Students will evaluate a number of claims of relationships between music and language, understand some of the musical, linguistic, psychological and cultural phenomena that have prompted those claims, consider some proposed alternative explanations and develop some promising comparisons further. Students will build their sense about how both music and language work and they will consider the kinds of phenomena that may or may not be classifiable as linguistic, paralinguistic and/or musical. They will get to know more music and develop their abilities as discerning listeners and/or performers of music and language. Prerequisites: MUS 080 PO  and LGCS 010 PO .
This course has been revised for spring 2021.  
Satisfies the following General Education Requirement(s), subject to conditions explained in the Degree Requirements section of this Catalog:
