Euphony means the quality of being pleasing to the ear, especially through a harmonious combination of words. So an example would be: "I love the euphony of his speech!"

The word "euphony" is a noun, a word for a pleasing or enjoyable sound; a word for a combination of pleasant sounds and/or words; a word for a thing.


A noun functions as the subject of a sentence or a clause, and as the object of a verb or a preposition.

Example uses:
The euphony of the waves on the beach made me drowsy.
-- Subject of the sentence.

We sat on the patio where a euphony of crickets serenaded us.
-- Subject of the adverbial clause.

The tower chimes a euphony of bells every day at noon.
-- Direct object of the verb "chimes".

The performers were elated by a euphony of applause.
-- Object of the preposition "by".
