  ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL PURPOSES Rosa Núñez 1   Hallam, S. (2010). The power of music: Its impact on the intellectual, social and personal development of children and young people. International Journal of Music Education , 28(3) 269-289.   The power of music: Its impact on the intellectual, social and personal development of children and young people The main purpose of this paper is to analyze linguistically and critically an article. We have selected this piece of writing because it will be useful for another subject. The article comes from the International Journal of Music Education. The issue deals with the possibility that knowledge of music can enable other knowledge ’s development . Therefore, this journal article synthesizes research findings of different authors in different intellectual development ending making suggestions for future research and a conclusion. To start with, we have to know that we analyze an article where the author mentions different author  s’  opinions. For this reason, it requires an effort to find the own author  ’s  opinion. Nevertheless, when she writes it, she glimpses her position with a lot of elements and linguistics strategies. Having in mind linguistic, pragmatic and functional aspects of language, we are going to start with the first categories of Hedging. This type belongs to the use of modal verbs, such as can , may  or might , all of them with an epistemological value. In other words, these verbs are useful for expressing the author’s opinion about the diverse research, which are formulated by other authors, without showing her own point of view. For instance, in the following sentence this may  produce functional changes in how the brain processes information ; the author is not sure about this information because the human brain function is not already known. On the other hand, it has been very difficult for us to find intensifying modal verbs as do, have  or will . These modal verbs are always accompanied by the pronoun we  which has only been used by the author when the other authors’ views  were based on studies whose results have been demonstrated. For example, the ease with which we do this depend on our prior musical and linguistic experiences and the culturally determined tonal schemed or language to which we have become accustomed (Dowling, 1993) . In the second place, we analyse the category that belongs to intensifiers. We observed a large amount of them which are known as amplifiers or maximizes. The intensifiers tend to influence listeners’ reception of what it is said (Partington, 1993). There are a lot of amplifiers and it is due to the fact that the author agrees with the other authors’ views although she does not express her  ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL PURPOSES Rosa Núñez 2   accord directly. For instance, the children who received the music instruction showed significantly greater gains in phonemic awareness … However, we have not found boosters, although the author glimpses that she agrees with the studies of other authors. The other intensifiers are named downtoners and they have a lowering effect. In this article it has been very difficult to find them, so we only could locate  just, slight  and sufficiently.  An example is the sentence, the ability to perceive slight   differences  in phonemes appeared to depend on the ability to extract information about the frequencies of the speech sounds (Lamb & Gregory, 1993) .  Analysing the text we have seen a large variety of linking words, the author uses these words to help us to connect ideas or sentences, they help to establish a logical argument. The great majority of them show chronological order or a sequence, such as when  or as . Another linking word that appears many times is as , it shows a cause and an effect. For instance, when students (aged 13-15) were taught to judge symmetrically structured musical phrases as balanced or unbalanced using traditional instructions about the differences, or  participating in musical experiences, activity in different brain areas was observed  . In order to continue with analysing the article, the author uses the passive voice as a resource to highlight the most relevant events within the sentences, seeing that the important fact is not who executes the action. An example is, as learning continues and particular activities are engaged with over time myelinization takes place. Or this knowledge is implicit, learned through exposure to particular environment, and is applied automatically whenever we listen to music or speech.  In this case, the function is behind this strategy choice is not to show his own opinion because many investigations have not been demonstrated scientifically. However, in all contexts of the article it is possible to understand the favourable author  ’s  opinion. To conclude this deeper analysis, the nominalization is not frequently used through the text, although we can find some of them, such as the transfer of learning from one domain to another depend on the similarities between the  processes involved. Or learning occurs without our conscious awareness.   As far as I am concerned, the author uses many times the verb “ seem ”  in the entire article, but she does it with more intensity when she writes the conclusions. I think that the use of this linguistic choice means that she doubts about the truthfulness of the information. However, the author uses positive amplifiers to express that she agrees them, but without confirm it.  ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL PURPOSES Rosa Núñez 3  -   What is the function there are behind the linguistic choice ... -   I found modalities verbs in this text and usually when the author use this modality it is because ... one example is : (copy the example) All this useful vocabulary it is indicated to show the position of the author, help to identify the position of the author Identify the voice of author  which are used to emphasize such as unable In particular, deeper analysis applied / provide .
