          1. audio.
       
          2.  An inference system A is sound with respect to
          another system B if A can only reach conclusions which are
          true in B.  A type inference system is considered sound with
          respect to a semantics if the type inferred for an
          expression is the same as the type inferred for the meaning of
          that expression under the semantics.
       
          The dual to soundness is completeness.
