melody / melədi /
Sinonimi: tonal pattern
ETYM Old Eng. melodie, French mélodie, Latin melodia, from Greek, a singing, choral song, from melos song, tune + aiedein to sing. Related to Ode.
The perception of pleasant arrangements of musical notes; SYN. tonal pattern.
In music, a distinctive sequence of notes sounded consecutively within an orderly pitch structure such as a scale or a mode. A melody may be a tune in its own right, or it may form a theme running through a longer piece of music.
The expressive component of melody is related to an intuitive balance between the expression of movement, through change of pitch, and an expectation that certain constant features should emerge. The underlying constant features are the scale or mode; in Western music these are enhanced by key and harmony.

1. Harmonious arrangement or relation of parts or elements within a whole (as in a design); SYN. balance.
2. Magnitude or extent; SYN. dimension.
3. The quotient obtained when the magnitude of a part is divided by the magnitude of the whole; SYN. proportionality.
The relation of a part to the whole (usually expressed as a fraction or percentage). In mathematics two variable quantities x and y are proportional if, for all values of x, y = kx, where k is a constant. This means that if x increases, y increases in a linear fashion.
A graph of x against y would be a straight line passing through the origin (the point x = 0, y = 0). y is inversely proportional to x if the graph of y against 1/x is a straight line through the origin. The corresponding equation is y = k/x. Many laws of science relate quantities that are proportional (for example, Boyle’s law).

ETYM Latin uniformitas: cf. French uniformité.
1. A condition in which everything is regular and unvarying.
