I vote for removal of:
- (note: The following paragraph illustrates American and Canadian usage.)
- Ice hockey is played on a sheet of ice which is not called a "pitch".
- Basketball and netsports (tennis, volleyball, badminton, etc) are played on a "court".
- American football is played on a "field".
- Baseball is played on a "field" which includes a "diamond".

i think they forgot to talk about the sound pitch
- It's in there now. Hyacinth 17:54, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Especially when this is exactly what Pitch (music) is?

- Nevermind Catherine. Your edit was based on my typo, which I realized I had made after the above post. Thanks! Hyacinth 21:31, 8 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Pitch is a widely used term in the engineering field in applications that have nothing to do with music, e.g. in speech compression, digital speech, and speech encryption. Having the only listing for it be to an article which is mostly about the musical meaning is completely implausible. I will write a separate "pitch (sound)" article and put it back in the disambig page. Noel (talk) 14:00, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- The engineering application is usually known as frequency. Pitch is usually understood to have a perceptive or subjective aspect to it. Before seeing this comment, I had merged Pitch (sound) into Pitch (music). A merge request was outstanding and both covered the perception of frequency. Judging from the fact that the two articles ended up occupying the same space, there's apparently not a fundamental difference between pitch applied to music and perception of other sounds. --Kvng (talk) 18:44, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
Obviously from the above it's the result of some effort and even some pain, but I think this is already an excellent disambig! Well done all who have helped make it so. Of course it will never be perfect, that is Wikipedia dogma! Andrewa 19:53, 13 August 2005 (UTC)
In speech and language
YEAH There is an error in the entry reading:
"Tone of voice" discusses vocal pitch.
The link actually redirects to a page discussing non-verbal communication, not once mentioning pitch!
A link to an article about the (technical) meaning of pitch in speech is missing.
I.e. there are many articles describing what can be meant by using different pitch in speech (i.e. tonal information), but none about what Pitch actually is (in speech).
I can't find info like: "Pitch is the fundamental frequency of the speech signal" anywhere? It's a bit thin to start a "Pitch (speech)" article on, though.
The "Vocal cords" entry says (among other things):
"A person's voice pitch is determined by the resonant frequency of the vocal folds."
That could be a decent link, for want of a better choice.
Pitch can also describe the centerline-to-centerline separation of contacts in something like an IC socket. There are varying degrees of pitch such as standard pitch, fine pitch, and super fine pitch. It might be useful to get an official definition for this context and put it on this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:02, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
