Your discussion on tune reminded me of my experiences with tone in phonology classes. Having studied music, and being proficient on about a dozen instruments, I thought myself somewhat at an advantage when we began doing tonetic transcriptions. Was I ever amazed to see how often I was wrong in my transcriptions! I don't know how it is best explained, but there is surely some tune/tone distinction to my ear. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ;Kathleen M. O'Neill ...
