NoiseA noise it’s a powerful noise what generates shock. When an individual hears a noise, this sound draws their attention due to its particular characteristics. For instance: “What was that rumble? It sounded like an explosion “, “When the building collapsed, the noise was heard throughout the neighborhood”, “I will never forget the crash the helicopter made when it collapsed in the field”.

The explosions and the outbursts they cause a roar. If something explodes, it suddenly and violently releases sound, light and caloric energy. Those waves they propagate in space and can travel great distances.

Suppose a terrorist group blows up a bomb in the middle of a city. The roar produced by the detonation will surely be heard in several neighborhoods, even some kilometers away from the place of the explosion.

A collision between two cars that were moving very fast, a house that collapses due to a failure in its structure, a airplane taking off and a moving train also produce a rumble.

Sometimes a rumble occurs when many people demonstrate simultaneously. In a match of soccer, when a player scores a goal and those in the stadium shout and celebrate at the same time, a roar is generated. The same happens at the beginning of a concert when the artists appear on stage and people express their joy.

A rumble, in short, is a noise that disturbs the tranquility. Due to the intensity of the sound, a subject who is sleeping may wake up to a noise, for example.

By closely studying its etymology, we discover that the term noise derives from the Latin word tonitrus (defined as «Thunder«) Preceded by the prefix, also Latin, former-. To get to the way -thunder, the Latin word had to go through several phenomena, among which are the metathesis de la erre, la sound system of the tee between two vowels, the syncopation that caused the fall of the i and the diphthongation of the O.

NoiseAccording to research by Joan Coromines i Vigneaux, a philologist and etymologist born in Barcelona in 1905, the element it is- of the word noise arose by analogy with many others also from Latin that are used to describe noises of great strength, as they are bang, bang and crash. Coromines arrived at this deduction since he found no trace of vulgar formations such as “extonitrare” in Latin.

The Latin term tonitrus it also gave rise to the birth of embrasure, thunder and thunder, more examples of concepts associated with noise in our language. To find its origin we must refer to the verb tonare (which in our language can be understood as “thunder”), from which we also receive “attire” and “detonate«. This verb is linked to nouns like “thunder” and verbs like “rumble.”

In addition to the noun noise, we have at our disposal the adjective thunderous, which helps us to refer to a noise with the characteristic of being especially booming, powerful and deafening. Since the concept of noise is implicit in its meaning, to speak of “thunderous noise” may seem redundant, but it serves to emphasize its power and in the effects it causes on listeners. With respect to its use in everyday speech, it is not as common, but simpler terms such as “strong” or “powerful” are preferred.

In the universe of Pokemon, a Japanese video game series of considerable worldwide popularity, there is a sound movement called noise, which serves to cause harm and does not carry side effects. If you run on a combat double or triple, it hits all the Pokémon that are in a position adjacent to the user.
