Music, notation and the representation of lexical tone

Murray Schellenberg

Music has played a significant role in the study and analysis of lexical tone. This paper presents a brief summary of some of the ways scholars have used and adapted conventions of Western musical notation to further their study of tone. It also examines the possible influence of cultural perceptions of melody on Western perspectives of tone.
