Mensagem:  Dear Miguel I know you asked Ricardo but let me give my little contribution. I've read somewhere about the inverted situation, that is, people who speak Chinese or Vietnamese tend to have a great musical perception for their languages are extremely tonal, the same word can bear several different meanings by the way the person utters it, short, long, in a higher or lower pitch...they can identify a musical note absolutely, that means, they do not need another note to identify the first one given. We needn't go further, people who are incapable of hearing can't utter words at least in a harmonious way. José Roberto
