Résumé The aim of this experiment is to determine whether eight weeks of musical training based on pitch processing can help 8-year old children to detect pitch changes in language. Results show that a relatively short exposure to pitch processing in music exerts some influence on pitch processing in language. Therefore, these results are in line with the hypothesis that common processes may underlie pitch processing in language and in music.
