Abstract

The purpose of this positioning paper is to propose a new definitional framework of sound, sonosemantics. The need for this is apparent for a number of reasons. Physiological conditions such as some forms of subjective tinnitus require no sound waves for sound to be heard yet all current mainstream definitions of sound state that sound is a sound wave or that sound requires sound waves for its perception. New research suggests a closer and directly causal identification of sound with emotion than hitherto uncovered. New technology suggests new ways to exploit the possibility of hearing sound in the absence of sound waves.
