ABSTRACT. According to Ockelford, an effective way of explaining zygonic theory is through analogy with the construction of meaning in verbal language. Budd explains that the judgement that a musical phrase sounds melancholy is purely descriptive. Robinson insists that some music has the power to affect our feelings without much, if any, cognitive mediation. (pp. 335–340)

Keywords: metaphor, musical, experience, zygonic, cognitive, sound
