A trill is a little sound perk, a nice musical benefit package. It's like "phrininininING!" or "ThununununA!"


Trills brighten up conversations unweirdly. "Howwwwww arrrrrre yoooooooooou?"

"In England, the trill was referred to as shake from the 16th till the 19th Century" (Wikipedia). What made them stop? Presumably trill pulled off some kind of lexicographic coup.
