Abstract: Recent studies have found a stronger association between domains of music and speech (e.g. Wong, Skoe, Russo, Dees, & Kraus, 2007). Unlike non-tone languages, pitch is employed to mark meaning in every syllable in many tone languages such as Mandarin. In tone languages with multiple tones that share a similar tonal pattern, such as Cantonese, the complexity of tone perception is further increased. [3rd Award]
