Deconstructing Babble as Basic Speech

<< < (2/2)

Yes, I have three cousins from Ukraine, they spoke no English when they first came to the United States, I spent much time helping them with their pronunciations and vocabulary. That would explain the Russian sounding phonetics.

Something interesting has developed. I was humming to myself while working, and the humming turned into a vocalized song. At first I thought it was Latvian, which I have learned several songs in, but on closer inspection, it seemed to be the babble language for which I made this thread. From a musical perspective, it's well-constructed, and it doesn't seem to be using the melody of another song. I am a musician and a songwriter, so it isn't terribly odd for me to just cognize a melody out of nowhere. The song is here for the listening: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bz1MNsJ_Qfl2dEZ4MW4ybWxCNEk

I don't know if this changes anything, but I find it interesting.
