A part of Noh performance consisting of utai (vocals), hayashi (music) and shosa (movement). There are two types of vocal rhythm: "Hyōshiai," and "hyōshiawazu," or harmonized and unharmonized chanting, respectively. "Hyōshi-ai" is divided into three subtypes: Hiranori, Chū-nori and Ō-nori. "hyōshiawazu" is divided into two subtypes: utai-nori and sashi-nori. In addition, the vocal part other than goma-fushi (parts designated by dots in librettos) is called "kotoba."
