The most obvious musical forms are not the most decisive: the sound music of the sentence can escape the blandness of ornamentation only by accompanying its intrinsic music, giving itself up to it. This merges in a rhythm which is essentially mute. Syntax itself is this rhythm. It is a cadenced order, a sequential hierarchy. The grammatical construction of the sentence is obviously rhythmical—it segments by giving value to each of its parts.
