  • Bloop
    Bloop was an ultra-low-frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.
  • Sound symbolism
    In linguistics, sound symbolism, phonesthesia or phonosemantics is the idea that vocal sounds or phonemes carry meaning in and of themselves.
  • Speed of sound
    The speed of sound is the distance travelled per unit time by a sound wave as it propagates through an elastic medium.
  • Hearing
    Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear.
  • Infrasound
    Infrasound, sometimes referred to as low-frequency sound, is sound that is lower in frequency than 20 Hz (hertz) or cycles per second, the "normal" limit of human hearing.
  • Supersonic speed
    Supersonic speed is a rate of travel of an object that exceeds the speed of sound (Mach 1).
  • Shepard tone
    A Shepard tone, named after Roger Shepard (born 1929), is a sound consisting of a superposition of sine waves separated by octaves.
  • Concert pitch
    Concert pitch refers to the pitch reference to which a group of musical instruments are tuned for a performance.
  • Phonophobia
    Phonophobia, also called ligyrophobia or sonophobia, is a fear of or aversion to loud sounds—a type of specific phobia.
  • Thunder
    Thunder is the sound caused by lightning.
  • Soundscape
    The soundscape is the component of the acoustic environment that can be perceived by humans.
  • Purr
    A purr is a tonal fluttering sound made by some species of felids, and two species of genets.
  • Stridulation
    Stridulation is the act of producing sound by rubbing together certain body parts.
  • Textsound journal
    textsound journal (textsound) is an audio online literary magazine that publishes experimental poetry and sound.
  • Acoustic ecology
    (See also: Soundscape ecology) Acoustic ecology, sometimes called ecoacoustics or soundscape studies, is a discipline studying the relationship, mediated through sound, between human beings and their environment.
  • Atmospheric diffraction
    Atmospheric diffraction is manifested in the following principal ways: * Optical atmospheric diffraction * Radio wave diffraction is the scattering of radio frequency or lower frequencies from the Earth's ionosphere, resulting in the ability to achieve greater distance radio broadcasting.
  • A3D
    A3D (Aureal 3-Dimensional) was a technology developed by Aureal Semiconductor for use in their Vortex line of PC sound chips to deliver three-dimensional sound through headphones, two or even four speakers.
  • Precedence effect
    The precedence effect or law of the first wavefront is a binaural psychoacoustic effect.
  • Speech transmission index
    Speech Transmission Index (STI) is a measure of speech transmission quality.
  • Sound pressure
    Sound pressure or acoustic pressure is the local pressure deviation from the ambient (average, or equilibrium) atmospheric pressure, caused by a sound wave.
  • Growling
    Growling or growl is a low, guttural vocalization produced by predatory animals as a warning to others, as a sign of aggression, or to express anger.
  • Audio frequency
    An audio frequency (abbreviation: AF) or audible frequency is characterized as a periodic vibration whose frequency is audible to the average human.
  • Sound energy density
    Sound energy density or sound density is the sound energy per unit volume.
  • Freesound
    Freesound is a collaborative repository of Creative Commons licensed audio samples with more than 230,000 sounds and 4 million registered users (as of February 2015).
  • Humming
    A hum is a sound made by producing a wordless tone with the mouth opened or closed, forcing the sound to emerge from the nose.
