Interdisciplinary Connections between Language, Music, Evolution, and Reading

EVOLUTIONARY SCIENCE SHOWS THE INTERSPECIES ROOTS OF LANGUAGE
  • This is how and why we develop PERFECT PITCH
  • WHY DO CHILDREN SING? — THE ANSWER
  • Listen to Human SILBO Whistle Language
  • Hear Piraha sung speech
  • Hear: WHALE Whistle Hear Humpback Chorus
  • Hear A Mexican Whistler

BIRDS, BEES, WHALES, DOLPHINS, GORILLA, BONOBO, LION ALL HAVE LANGUAGE.

INTERSPECIES ANIMAL LANGUAGE:
Interspecies Language Evolution From Whistling to Speech. Other species that communicate with each other use clicks, whistles, song and gestures.

HAND CLAPPING AND HOOTING
You can imagine that the clapping and hooting you hear in the audience is one of the last vestiges of gestures we still have as evolution propelled us towards a species that became a group to use speech / language.

DRUM LANGUAGE

Ancient Text Messages of the Yoruba Bata Drum – Cracking the Code.
The analysis draws the direct links between what is spoken in Yoruba, how Yoruba is transformed in to the coded language (ena), how ena prescribes the drum strokes and, finally, how listeners (and which listeners) extract linguistic meaning from what is drummed.

DRUM LANGUAGE – AMERICAN VIRGIN ISLANDS
When Twi is drummed, the resulting drum language is called ayan.

The Drummer – Talking Drums

The term ‘2nd line march,’ originates in the New Orleans African American/creole traditional funeral processions.
The first line in the procession is the family of the deceased, and the band marches along in the second line.

The Etymology of the word JAZZ 
It is characterized by blue notes, syncopation , swung note , call and response (music) , polyrhythms, and improvisation.

The 2nd Line March beat, as it relates to timing in Irish tradition starts with the origin of jazz mostly in the New Orleans and the Mississippi River delta. Western classical music out of Europe usually plays out in simple time (a single time signature and rhythm) jazz time is rooted in an import from Africa. A Simultaneous juxtaposition and interaction of two different rhythms, simultaneously. In the case of the 2nd line march beat, the simultaneous playing of 4/4 and 3 against 2.

The pattern is  ^two times, at the same time^
6/8 rhythm, and  4/4 over the top.
“THAT is jig timing!!

RHYTHM and ABSOLUTE TIME – WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
The Science of Why Using Music to Teach Children Works.

The Gesture – Before words you will use your hands. Baby Sign Language. The movement of your hand. The sound. Even the way we represent animals is cultural.

The value of play is found in the work of Speech, Clapping, jumping, and circle game rhymes which use the tactile pathways and help wire the brain for higher thinking and reading skills.

National Children’s Folksong Repository – the value of children’s oral culture – clapping hands and speech.

  • Structure exposes the evolutionary roots of language.
  • Scientists Report Finding a Gene for Speech
  • How do babies begin to acquire language?
    Rhythmic patterns underlie the human language. How children learn the meanings of words. Grammer is hard wired. Letters are shaped that way for a reason. Rhythm and pitch give the meaning.

By 6 months of age
infants develop a map in the auditory cortex of the phonetic sounds in the native language their mother or caretaker speaks.
Depending on the language they either will or will not develop perfect pitch.

  • Toddlers Understand Complex Grammar

LANGUAGE structure may reveal more about human origins than vocabulary.

WHY should links exist between music and language?
Some researchers think that the two might have a common evolutionary origin.

From Eliza to Siri

ELIZA is an early natural language processing computer program created from 1964 to 1966[1] at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory by Joseph Weizenbaum.[2]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA

Created to demonstrate the superficiality of communication between humans and machines, Eliza simulated conversation by using a ‘pattern matching’ and substitution methodology that gave users an illusion of understanding on the part of the program, but had no built in framework for contextualizing events.[3] Directives on how to interact were provided by ‘scripts’, written originally in MAD-Slip, which allowed ELIZA to process user inputs and engage in discourse following the rules and directions of the script. The most famous script, DOCTOR, simulated a Rogerian psychotherapist and used rules, dictated in the script, to respond with non-directional questions to user inputs. As such, ELIZA was one of the first chatterbots and one of the first programs capable of attempting the Turing Test.
ELIZA creator, Weizenbaum regarded the program as a method to show the superficiality of communication between man and machine, but was surprised by the number of individuals who attributed human-like feelings to the computer program, including Weizenbaum’s secretary.[2] Many academics believed that the program would be able to positively influence the lives of many people, particularly those suffering from psychological issues and that it could aid doctors working on such patients’ treatment.[2][4] While ELIZA was capable of engaging in discourse, ELIZA could not converse with true understanding.[5] However, many early users were convinced of ELIZA’s intelligence and understanding, despite Weizenbaum’s insistence to the contrary.

Talking Eliza written by Matthew Reed
Cover of the instruction manual for Eliza
Eliza (catalog number 26-1908), also known as Talking Eliza, was a TRS‑80 Model I and Model III implementation of Dr. Joseph Weizenbaum’s famous ELIZA program. It was introduced by Radio Shack in 1979 for a price of $14.95. Eliza was written by Robert A. Arnstein and was licensed to Radio Shack through his company, Device Oriented Games. One unusual feature of the program was its ability to speak its responses using Radio Shack’s TRS‑80 Voice Synthesizer, hence the name Talking Eliza.
