Chinese tones

p.s. Related topic: I believe Bruno Repp (among others) found that pitch
in Chinese is processed in areas of the brain associated with language
rather than with music.
Not, not me, alas. But the statement is correct, I believe (though I
have not kept up with the recent literature in this area). See, for

Packard, J. L. (1986). Tone production deficits in nonfluent aphasic
Chinese speech. Brain and Language, 29, 212-223.
