Have an opinion?
I don't quite consider them exactly synonymous since "more noise" could imply more sounds and not only an increase in the amplitude of a single sound source."I heard more noise" could mean you hear either louder sounds or more sounds. "The sounds grew louder" specifically means the same sounds are growing in amplitude.
Like: "I heard more noise as I ventured near the forest, hearing the sound of crickets chirping and owls hooting. As I moved into the forest, the sounds grew louder."
Thanks, another question:is there anything wrong with these instructions. do steps 3 and 4 mean the same thing?"Propose Trade on the ESPN Fantasy App1. Select which team you want to trade with.2. Click on "Propose Trade"3. Click on the player (s) you want to trade. 4. Click on the player (s) you want to offer in return.5. Click on "Submit" to finalize the trade
Of course "more noise" usually implies "louder", but I wouldn't think it's the same thing all the time.>> is there anything wrong with these instructions. do steps 3 and 4 mean the same thing?That's getting into the design of the software but I suspect #4 is different like maybe #3 starts a trade session with one or more players, and #4 is describing how to offer something in exchange with one or more players.
i guess its fair to say "more noise" means louderand "more noises" means more sounds
That's tricky. I'd be eager for a second opinion from someone with some English expertise. The tricky part is that "noise" can be defined as a "sound", but also a "series of sounds". So there might be a case where "more noise" might mean an increase in the number/series of sounds.
That makes "more" somewhat ambiguous here when combined with "noise". To be on the safe side, I'd disambiguate an increase in amplitude by using something like, "I heard louder noise" as opposed to "I heard more noise".
Example: "I heard the loud noise of a gunshot nearby" vs. "I heard more noise [or noises] of whispering as people entered the auditorium."
last question: Does "A lot of sound comes out of that speaker make sense?"
A lot of sound comes out of that speaker
It makes total sense to me. That would definitely refer to the amplitude as I see it.
Same with "She makes a lot of sound." you would say that makes sense? "she makes a lot of sound "
Yes, in that case the most obvious implication to me is that she talks a whole lot.
Let's use whispering people as an example: Between a pair of people whispering and fifty pairs of people whispering at the same volume level as just a pair, you will surely notice a significant rise in the level of noise you can hear.
Yes. However loud doesn't necessarily pertain to volume. More noise really means filling the air with sound. It doesn't have to be louder to accomplish this. You can have a cacophony of noise, and it will accomplish filling space with sound.
I believe three sources of the same volume increase decibels by 1. So mathmatically yes.
