Noise   Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

1. Sound of any kind.

"The heavens turn about in a most rapid motion without noise to us perceived." -- Bacon.

[MORE]
Noise is either a sound of too short a duration to be determined, like the report of a cannon; or else it is a confused mixture of many discordant sounds, like the rolling of thunder or the noise of the waves. Nevertheless, the difference between sound and noise is by no means precise. Ganot.

2. Especially, loud, confused, or senseless sound; clamor; din.

3. Loud or continuous talk; general talk or discussion; rumor; report. "The noise goes." Shak.

"What noise have we had about transplantation of diseases and transfusion of blood!" -- T. Baker.

"Soerates lived in Athens during the great plague which has made so much noise in all ages." -- Spectator.

4. Music, in general; a concert; also, a company of musicians; a band. [Obs.] Milton.

"The king has his noise of gypsies." -- B. Jonson.

Syn. -- Cry; outcry; clamor; din; clatter; uproar.
