Definition of resonance:
- A prolongation or increase of any sound, either by reflection, as in a cavern or apartment the walls of which are not distant enough to return a distinct echo, or by the production of vibrations in other bodies, as a sounding- board, or the bodies of musical instruments.
- An electric phenomenon corresponding to that of acoustic resonance, due to the existance of certain relations of the capacity, inductance, resistance, and frequency of an alternating circuit.
- The act of resounding; the quality or state of being resonant.
- "See America First", Orville O. Hiestand.
Nasal Resonance Produces the Bell- tones of the Voice The tone passages of the nose must be kept entirely free for the bright tones of voice- and after our warning in the preceding chapter you will not confuse what is popularly and erroneously called a " nasal" tone with the true nasal quality, which is so well illustrated by the voice work of trained French singers and speakers.- "The Art of Public Speaking", Dale Carnagey (AKA Dale Carnegie) and J. Berg Esenwein.
This street- now little frequented, hot in summer, cold in winter, dark in certain sections- is remarkable for the resonance of its little pebbly pavement, always clean and dry, for the narrowness of its tortuous road- way, for the peaceful stillness of its houses, which belong to the Old town and are over- topped by the ramparts.- "Eugenie Grandet", Honore de Balzac.
