THE ROLE OF CHILDREN'S SONGS IN THE PROCESS OF FORMATION OF STUDENTS' PRONUNCIATION SKILLS AND VOCABULARY
Keywords:song material, pupils of primary school age, development of oral speech, speech culture, native language, songs in the educational process.
Language is initially transmitted to children through speech, musical cognition can play an important adaptive function, allowing children's linguistic skills to develop more quickly. Arguments in favor of innate language abilities often appeal to the problem of "poverty of incentives": the language is too complex for children to learn it based only on positive data. Along with facial expressions and gestures, the musical features of language can help overcome the "poverty of stimuli" and provide a richer context for language induction. From a developmental point of view, the sequence is clear: first, we play with sounds; then we play with meanings and syntax. Our innate musical intelligence makes us capable of mastering speech. Music as an art form can develop out of this initial confusion: it can allow us to continue to explore and use features of musical knowledge that language does not prioritize.
