  Mute \Mute\, a. [L. mutus; cf. Gr. my`ein to shut, Skr. m[=u]ta
     bound, m[=u]ka dumb: cf. OE. muet, fr. F. muet, a dim. of OF.
     mu, L. mutus.]
     1. Not speaking; uttering no sound; silent.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              All the heavenly choir stood mute,
              And silence was in heaven.            --Milton.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: In law a prisoner is said to stand mute, when, upon
           being arranged, he makes no answer, or does not plead
           directly, or will not put himself on trial.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Incapable of speaking; dumb. --Dryden.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. Not uttered; unpronounced; silent; also, produced by
        complete closure of the mouth organs which interrupt the
        passage of breath; -- said of certain letters. See 5th
        {Mute}, 2.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. Not giving a ringing sound when struck; -- said of a
        metal.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     {Mute swan} (Zool.), a European wild white swan ({Cygnus
        olor} syn. {Cygnus gibbus}), which produces no loud notes,
        in distinction from the {Trumpeter swan}.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Silent; dumb; speechless.
  
     Usage: {Mute}, {Silent}, {Dumb}. One is silent who does not
            speak; one is dumb who can not, for want of the proper
            organs; as, a dumb beast, etc.; and hence,
            figuratively, we speak of a person as struck dumb with
            astonishment, etc. One is mute who is held back from
            speaking by some special cause; as, he was mute
            through fear; mute astonishment, etc. Such is the case
            with most of those who never speak from childhood;
            they are not ordinarily dumb, but mute because they
            are deaf, and therefore never learn to talk; and hence
            their more appropriate name is deaf-mutes.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  They spake not a word;
                  But, like dumb statues, or breathing stones,
                  Gazed each on other.              --Shak.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  All sat mute,
                  Pondering the danger with deep thoughts.
                                                    --Milton.
            [1913 Webster]
