Regarding the recent thread on speech/music/singing, there is an article by ethnomusicologist George List on speech and song in Ethnomusicology (the journal for the Society for Ethnomusicology) back in the 1960s or 70s. There List proposed a diamond diagram in which four major variants are identify to distinguish between speech and song. Sorry that I don't have the exact citation at hand.
