comment What is the significance of the gender of a noun in Spanish?
From what I understand, there is a masculinity and femininity to everything in other languages. El sol is masculine compared to la luna that is much less bright, and smaller in comparison. La manzana would be the smaller, and el manzano (apple tree) would be the larger and masculine. Looking at your example of el sonido, would be larger, and more general, whereas, something like la musica, would have a beautiful and more delicate quality, making it more of a feminine construction. I wouldn't say that it is a rule that anything that doesn't end with 'a' it is masculine, its just the rules.

comment Does contracting a phrase change its undertone?
That isn't really a contraction, the only contractions in Spanish are del, al, etc. the example that you gave is a gramatical construction that allows pronouns to be added onto the end of the verb. Ex: infinitive verbs, positive tu commands, and positive vosotros commands.

comment “Ir a” versus future tense when asking a question
In my experience speaking spanish with people from Mexico, El Salvado, Ecuador, Peru, and Columbia, it is also the same, voy a <verbo> and verbo en tenso futuro are the same, and can be used interchangeably.
