Introducing a Brand New Educational Blog!
Alex is a PhD student of systematic musicology. Her focus is on systematic musicology, linguistics and cognitive science and investigates music and language, trying to show how they are related with regard to conceptual metaphor and blending.
At the moment, the main focus is on image schemas and language acquisition, as she wants to find out if image schemas play a part for the perception of music.
From time to time she will post papers and comments on her ongoing projects. Everyone is invited to contribute to a hopefully fruitful discussion on music and language.
