Suggestions For A Parametric Typology Of Dance, Donna Jo Napoli, L. Kraus Jan 2017

Suggestions For A Parametric Typology Of Dance, Donna Jo Napoli, L. Kraus

Linguistics Faculty Works

Dance and language are produced/performed by the body and governed by cognitive faculties. Yet regrettably little scholarship applies tools of formal analysis in one field to the other. This paper aims to enrich dialogue between the two fields. We introduce an approach to dance typology formed on analogy with the parametric theory of language analysis, useful in typologizing languages. This initial exploration paves the way for a physiological typology of dance, without reference to culture.
