Music & Language Revisited

19. septiembre 2012
The topic of the connection between music and language, which I have already talked about here, keeps coming up for some reason… 
Today, I came across this very interesting article in my Twitter time line: Music Underlies Language Acquisition, Theorists Propose. The article basically says that contrary to common belief, music is “not dependent on or derived from language”, but rather that “spoken language is a special type of music” – “music comes first and language arises from music.”
Would it then maybe follow that especially musical people are particularly gifted for languages? 
What do you think?
