[Note] that 'white' [is] also homonymous,[1] just like 'good'.[2] What in reference to the body is called 'white' means color, which is under [the category of] quality, and [what is called 'white'] in the voice [means] its activity; for a voice easy to hear is called 'clear'; and it is easy to hear the [sound] which strongly and quickly affects the hearing. Similarly, 'acute' might be shown [as being] homonymous.
