Language and Music Vitality

A Comparative Framework

(p.47) chapter 2 Language and Music Vitality
Music Endangerment

Catherine Grant

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the similarities and differences between language and music, specifically in relation to their viability. By developing a comparative framework to articulate these similarities and differences, this chapter represents a step towards identifying ways in which language maintenance might (and might not) inform ways to support endangered music genres. The chapter is structured according to five domains of music sustainability (Schippers, 2009): systems of learning music, musicians and communities, contexts and constructs, infrastructure and regulations, and media and the music industry. The discussion generates a comparative framework that articulates for the first time the theoretical, philosophical, and practical similarities and differences between languages and music genres, specifically in relation to their viability.

Keywords:   contexts, constructs, infrastructure, language and music, learning, media, music and communities, music industry, regulations
