Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Volume"

The meaning of "Volume" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does (and that spoke volume) mean?
A:

It’s written incorrectly. It should be:

My mom’s boyfriend just said, “Sometimes people hate you because of the way other people love you” and it spoke volumes.

It means that people are often jealous of someone because that person is so well-liked.

To speak volumes is an expression that means something says a lot without having to say the exact words that you mean.

Q: What does It's some of the best volume in hair that I've ever seen on a woman of your stature. mean?
A: I think it means that the woman has a lot of volume in her hair, as in it’s really fluffy and feels thick

A lot of volume in hair can make the hair look big and fluffy and it might seem funny on a woman who is small

So I think this sentence is comparing the woman’s hair to her height. I hope this helps ! (:
Q: What does speaks volumes mean?
A: If something speaks volumes, it makes an opinion, characteristic, or situation very clear without the use of words:

Q: What does volume from the combo on the postage stamp stage stood in for talent mean?
A: Ah, I found the novel :

The whole sentence is "On that cold sunny afternoon, Frank's first stop was a funky little jazz club, one of those basement joints where cigarette smoke and spilled-liquor smell passed for atmosphere, and volume from the combo on the postage-stamp stage stood in for talent"

Overall, the sentence means that the club is small and low quality.

Instead of "atmosphere" (here meaning cool surroundings, not actual air), they have smoke and spilled drinks.

So, "postage-stamp stage" means "very small stage"

"combo" means a small group of musicians, a duet, trio, or quartet.

"volume [...] stood in for talent" means they weren't good, but they were loud.

Q: What does by volume Tequental sells at twice the price of Parnol. mean?
A: It costs twice as much when measured by volume.

A: one is Germanic, the other is borrowed from French :P

in reality, they mean the same thing, but both are a bit awkward. "lower your voice" is much more common.

"lower the volume of your voice" = awkward

"decrease the volume of your voice" = awkward, but more formal

"lower your voice" = natural

BUT!

"decrease your voice" = wrong

A: Technically, the volume is high/low would be for the setting on a stereo, and loud/soft would refer to what you were actually hearing.

Honestly, though, I can pretty much interchange them.

Other questions about "Volume"

Q: He told me to turn up the volume but I ignored him and continued to play quiet music.
He told me to turn up the volume but I ignored him and continued to play the music quietly.
Which one is correct? If all correct, the meanings are different? Does this sound natural?
A: They are both technically correct and convey your meaning. However, the second sentence is better. In the first sentence, you don't indicate that you are referring to the music by saying "volume," although it is implied. The second is much clearer and sounds more like a native speaker.
Q: The volume was diminished by pushing the button.

The school disposed its strict school rules.

Only this sample is disproportionate, compared with the others.
Does this sound natural?
A: Normally, when discussing loud volume, the main verbs that get used are "lower", "decrease", and the extreme "mute". There are others but these are the mainstays, I think.

In the second example, I would use "rescind" instead of "dispose" for that context.

Finally, using the word "disproportionate" without concrete examples being mentioned is tough to remember or follow in my opinion.

My examples:
1. My boss' faculties were diminished by Alzheimer's disease.

2. The school disposed of the rotten pork in the cafeteria.

3. The American waistline is disproportionately larger than the Japanese waistline.

These are extreme examples but I find it easier to remember them mnemonically that way.
