p.2   "It is the motion imparted to this, the auditory nerve, which, in the brain, is translated into sound" and, discussing exploding gases in a lecture theatre, "every ear in this room is conscious of a shock, to which the name of sound is given."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Ambiguity
p.4   using the analogy of balls in a row hitting against each other (thus the motion of the first ball is transferred to the last), Tyndall states that "thus is sound conveyed from particle to particle through the air" and yet, when describing how this motion sets the tympanic membrane vibrating, which motion is itself transmitted along the auditory nerve to the brain, it is in the brain that "the vibrations are translated into sound"   Added by: sirfragalot
