Dear Mister Micawber,
Why do we use sound? Would you please give me an obvious explanation as usual?
With regard
Mitra

I can't give you an obvious one; part of the correct choice comes from experience with the language.
'Noise' is unstructured sound, but voices are structured (modulated), so 'noise' is wrong.
'Speech' is something the person is capable of, not the person's voice; speech is comes from intelligence; therefore, 'speech' is wrong.
'Roar'? Well, sometimes people roar in anger or excitement, but again it is not the voice, it is the person who does so.
'Sound' is just an auditory effect from a given cause, so we can have the sound of a voice, the sound of rain, the sound of music and the sound of silence-- just a few of many sound sources.

Hello, I am posting for the first time and have to say that I am just overwhelmed by amount of exercises available on your website. I just love it.
I have a question about conversation between two ladies.
Mary says: "I do hope so. I'm very fond of the main actor."
And Alice respons: "Me too. Just listen to the sound of his voice now."

Why the answer is not: So I am. Just listen to the sound of his voice now.
Thank you.

Sorry should be: "So am I."

'Me too' is a phrase of agreement often used in informal conversation. Its meaning can be 'so am I', 'I am as well'. 'I agree with you.' etc.

I love chocolate.
Me too.

I think english-test.net is the best place to learn English.
Me too.

I'm trying my best.
Me too.
