    Default How does it noise ? Is it correct

    My confusion:

    Both noise and sound are nouns. Still why is it incorrect to say "How does it noise" and why is it correct to say "How does it sound" ?

    Help please.

    Default Re: How does it noise ? Is it correct

    Welcome to the forum, sherbir,

    As nouns, 'noise' and 'sound' can, in certain contexts, have similar meanings - OneLook: General dictionary sites. However, your sentence requires a verb; there is a verb 'sound', but there is no verb 'noise' that would makes sense here. .
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
