Tone   Listen
noun
Tone  n.  
1.
Sound, or the character of a sound, or a sound considered as of this or that character; as, a low, high, loud, grave, acute, sweet, or harsh tone. "(Harmony divine) smooths her charming tones." "Tones that with seraph hymns might blend."
2.
(Rhet.) Accent, or inflection or modulation of the voice, as adapted to express emotion or passion. "Eager his tone, and ardent were his eyes."
3.
A whining style of speaking; a kind of mournful or artificial strain of voice; an affected speaking with a measured rhythm ahd a regular rise and fall of the voice; as, children often read with a tone.
4.
(Mus.)
(a)
A sound considered as to pitch; as, the seven tones of the octave; she has good high tones.
(b)
The larger kind of interval between contiguous sounds in the diatonic scale, the smaller being called a semitone as, a whole tone too flat; raise it a tone.
(c)
The peculiar quality of sound in any voice or instrument; as, a rich tone, a reedy tone.
(d)
A mode or tune or plain chant; as, the Gregorian tones. Note: The use of the word tone, both for a sound and for the interval between two sounds or tones, is confusing, but is common almost universal. Note: Nearly every musical sound is composite, consisting of several simultaneous tones having different rates of vibration according to fixed laws, which depend upon the nature of the vibrating body and the mode of excitation. The components (of a composite sound) are called partial tones; that one having the lowest rate of vibration is the fundamental tone, and the other partial tones are called harmonics, or overtones. The vibration ratios of the partial tones composing any sound are expressed by all, or by a part, of the numbers in the series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.; and the quality of any sound (the tone color) is due in part to the presence or absence of overtones as represented in this series, and in part to the greater or less intensity of those present as compared with the fundamental tone and with one another. Resultant tones, combination tones, summation tones, difference tones, Tartini's tones (terms only in part synonymous) are produced by the simultaneous sounding of two or more primary (simple or composite) tones.
5.
(Med.) That state of a body, or of any of its organs or parts, in which the animal functions are healthy and performed with due vigor. Note: In this sense, the word is metaphorically applied to character or faculties, intellectual and moral; as, his mind has lost its tone.
6.
(Physiol.) Tonicity; as, arterial tone.
7.
State of mind; temper; mood. "The strange situation I am in and the melancholy state of public affairs,... drag the mind down... from a philosophical tone or temper, to the drudgery of private and public business." "Their tone was dissatisfied, almost menacing."
8.
Tenor; character; spirit; drift; as, the tone of his remarks was commendatory.
9.
General or prevailing character or style, as of morals, manners, or sentiment, in reference to a scale of high and low; as, a low tone of morals; a tone of elevated sentiment; a courtly tone of manners.
10.
The general effect of a picture produced by the combination of light and shade, together with color in the case of a painting; commonly used in a favorable sense; as, this picture has tone.
11.
(Physiol.) Quality, with respect to attendant feeling; the more or less variable complex of emotion accompanying and characterizing a sensation or a conceptual state; as, feeling tone; color tone.
12.
Color quality proper; called also hue. Also, a gradation of color, either a hue, or a tint or shade. "She was dressed in a soft cloth of a gray tone."
13.
(Plant Physiol.) The condition of normal balance of a healthy plant in its relations to light, heat, and moisture.
Tone color. (Mus.) see the Note under def. 4, above.
Tone syllable, an accented syllable.

... these good people, who had persecution hanging over them, were still rejoicing greatly in the Lord. He does not feel it necessary to enjoin it upon them. It is a matter of course in their Christian life. And you will find that all through the New Testament this same tone is adopted which recognises gladness as being, on the one hand, an inseparable characteristic of the Christian experience, and on the other hand as being a thing that is a Christian man's duty to cultivate.

The house from which the instrument had been dragged was smashed beyond repair; save for some scrapes on the varnish the piano had suffered no harm, and its tone was agreeable to the ear. The pianist possessed technique and played with feeling and earnestness, and it seemed weirdly strange to hear Schumann's "Slumber Song" in such surroundings. But the war has produced ...

It is a positive gain and welcome change of tone in the recent discussion of racial issues to note in this study, as in Carl Sandburg's Chicago Riots, the growing tendency to be objective and to leave conclusions to the intelligence of one's readers.

Archelaus, changing his tone at this, humbly besought him to lay aside the thoughts of war, and make peace with Mithridates. Sylla consenting to this request, articles of agreement were concluded on.
