I love how in Two Ghosts Harry leaves that pause in the word heartbeat, because that’s what a heartbeat sounds like. It’s made out of two parts, thump-thump, thump-thump, heart-beat, heart-beat. The pronunciation of the word like that accentuates the feel of it. He almost literally tries to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat by recreating it with his voice and his notes.
