The contribution of music to the development of communication and language has only recently come to the attention of scientific investigation. In this talk I will argue that in an infant’s soundscape, music and language are not necessarily two separate systems. Rather, musical and linguistic interactions are situated along a continuum in which each modality has something specific to contribute, as well as offering overlapping and intersections. I will briefly review recent empirical and theoretical work and I will present a selection of examples from my research with infants, children and hunter-gatherers.
