Tips: To help you remember the meaning of the word din, "loud, persistent noise," think of a large dinner party where everyone is talking over one another and the noise of everyone's voices become louder as the night goes on. Din implies not only loudness, but clangor and discord. Think of all the sounds in a restaurant (people talking, music playing, dishes clanking) coming together to form a din. So, when you have dinner out, you're usually hearing a din.
