to speak; or more rarely sing or play music
The exact meaning of intone
can depend upon its context. It can mean:
- to say something somberly (slowly and seriously without much change in pitch)
- to speak or sing in a careful manner as with rising and falling pitch
- to say in a particular tone or pitch
- This seems to satisfy, for Felicity intones, "O great goddesses on these walls, grant us our heart's desires."
