                             Language and Music.

    Language and music. Both of these terms play a great role  in  peoples
life. Lets give definitions of these terms:
    Language is human speech, either spoken or written. It comes  from  the
Latin word lingua, meaning tongue, and a language still is often called  a
tongue.
    Music is sound arranged into pleasing or interesting patterns. It forms
an important part of many cultural and social activities.
    What are the common between these two different words? Well, at  first,
music as the language has their own symbols. In language it is phonemes  (in
oral speech) or morphemes (in written  speech)  and  in  music  it  is  tone
(sound) or note.
    In a majority, any language have an alphabet.  Western  musicians  name
the tones of a scale with the first eight letters: A, B, C, D, E, F,  G  and
H (Russian musicians usually name them as Do (Ut), Re, Mi, Fa, Sol,  La  and
Si).
    If the language is a way of communication between people,  music  is  a
language of music instruments. As language has its own styles (for  example,
  publicistic  style  (artistic),  informational  style,  declamatory  style
(oratorial), etcetera), music has such music styles as classical,  folklore,
 popular.
    Music is sounded due to musical instruments and the peoples who play on
its.
    The same phoneme may be writing down by  the  various  combinations  of
letters. For example,   [f]  f, ph, ff .
    In music the same sound may have various names; E  =  F  flat,  G  =  F
double sharp = A double flat.
    Aside from all this, language and music give  people  opportunities  to
express their feeling, emotions and ideas.
    But there are some difference between  these  terms.  The  language  of
music is one for everybody and people create music when they  are  impressed
by happiness, grief, melancholy,  love,  etc.  When  people  do  researches,
invent, philosophize, etc. they create new designations, symbols, words.
    Thus  due to music we  can  express  our  emotions  and  feelings  more
brilliant and colorful. Due to language we can express our thoughts,  views,
ideas more exactly.
