    Alden Anderson English 102 Summer '05 2: 15 Frost's Sense Robert Frost has a certain theory. That a sentence has an overall sound and that word may be taken out and the sound analyzed. The theory is Frost's "Sound of Sense." Or I like to say, that you may sense the sound of a sentence, with a simple little trick.

  • How Dolby Surround Works
    1,475 words
    Where surround sound came from Back in the early 1950 s, the film industry introduced a technology so revolutionary and complex that it was to be nearly 30 years before it made it into the home. They called it stereophonic sound. Today we call it surround sound (or less poetically, multichannel audio) to distinguish it from conventional two-channel home stereo. From its outset, movie stereo was multichannel, featuring at least three channels across the front of the auditorium, plus one or more s...
  • Sound In Poetry Bradstreet's Poem
    1,066 words
    Sound in Poetry Poems usually begin with words or phrase which appeal more because of their sound than their meaning, and the movement and phrasing of a poem. Every poem has a texture of sound, which is at least as important as the meaning behind the poem. Rhythm, being the regular recurrence of sound, is at the heart of all natural phenomena: the beating of a heart, the lapping of waves against the shore, the croaking of frogs on a summer's night, the whisper of wheat swaying in the wind. Rhyth...

The year was 1937, and over the ether came the cavernous, menacingly righteous growl "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men The Shadow knows. Heh-heh-heh."
