Sound Grammar

"Talking is the unviersal method of words that form the language of people It is also the creator of thoughts and ideas. Languages identify the position of said birthplace and its citizen. Sound stimulates the newborn baby and could cause the infant to cry. Sound itself is used inendless forms of communication. Sound is neither masculine nor feminie yet the worldwide use of it is ased on the order of human culture.

Sounds found inthe expression of music, vocal and instrumental, are the global styles or forms such as jazz, opera, country, classical and other musical genres, all equal in the concept of ideas. Sound has a specific meaning when used in different dialects. The culture of civilization when expressed indifferent tongues identifies the differneces.

The conclusion is that the Grammar of Sound is universal."
