Description - Linguistics and Semiotics in Music by Raymond Monelle
This handbook explains the various applications to music of analytical methods derived from linguistics and semiotics. Semiotics are related to the tradition of music aesthetics and to works such as Deryck Cooke's "The Language of Music", and the methods of linguistics are explained in language intelligible to musicians. It contains descriptions of the "neutral level", "semiotic analysis", transformation and generation, structural semantics and narrative grammar, intonation theory, the ideas of C.S. Peirce and applications in ethnomusicology with diagrams and music examples.
