Он помолчал немного, потом указал на Бездонный Колодец и продолжал уже более спокойным тоном.

He was evidently uncomfortable at these reminiscences, and was, I fancy, always afraid that I might take up the same tone again.

If a pure tone of high (inaudible) pitch be reflected from a single sheet so as to impinge upon a sensitive flame, the intensity will probably be insufficient to produce a visible effect.
Если чистый тон высокой (неслышимой) частоты отражается от одного полотнища, и затем встречает чувствительное пламя, то его интенсивность, вероятно, будет недостаточна для создания видимого эффекта.

"I know why I want to see him out here in the frost," Kolya cut him short in the despotic tone he was fond of adopting with "small boys," and Smurov ran to do his bidding.
-- Это уж я знаю, зачем мне его надо сюда на мороз, -- деспотически отрезал Коля (что ужасно любил делать с этими "маленькими"), и Смуров побежал исполнять приказание.

Dostoevsky, Fyodor
His eyes were set again, they had taken on a fixed stare, and he said: “Yes, yes, yes,” and “I see, I see, I see,” each three times, just as he had done in the morning, in a considering, deriding tone, and giving a sharp sound to the s’s.
Его глаза снова точно приковались к чему-то, их взгляд стал неподвижным, как будто незрячим, и так же, как утром, итальянец трижды произнес: «так-так-так» и «вот-вот-вот», задумчиво и насмешливо напирая на букву «т».

The necessity of carrying on this dialogue (his part in which was very slow; mine very quick) in a low tone, that the house might not be disturbed at an unseasonable hour, did not improve my temper; though my passion was cooling down.
Необходимость вести этот разговор понизив голос (он говорил очень медленно, а я очень быстро), чтобы в такой неурочный час не потревожить обитателей дома, не способствовала улучшению моего расположения духа; все же я немного остыл.

He assumed a thick, provincial accent and said in a tone of command: `65, catch your cabbage!'
И, подражая грубому провинциальному выговору, он скомандовал: — Сорок пять, лови свою капусту!

The unsatisfactory quality of contour reproduction in said method and device is associated with the halftone dot size being dependent on the averaged value of the tone signal of an area, for example, of the reflection coefficient thereof.
Недостаточное качество воспроизведения контуров в этом способе связано с тем, что размер растровой точки определяется усредненным значением оптического параметра участка, в частности, его коэффициента отражения.
And in this the tone of the two men was sufficiently typical of them.
Соответственный тон был очень характерен для каждого.
