According to Merriam-Webster, the definition for silence is:"1: forbearance from speech or noise2: absence of sound or noise"
No, it's Not. Silence is not a Sound. Silence is defined by the absence of sound. Sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. There is no sound at all in outer space, since there is no medium that can sustain its propagation.
Really? That's like asking if black is a color, someone wrote the same idea before me but got it backwards and said white. black is the absense of color, white is all colors. A rainbow, is white light prismatically seperated by water showing all the colors split hence the rainbow. Silence is the absense of vibrations, the main necessary component for sound, which also still exists whether you can hear it or not, in both the being present sense, and the capability sense. The laws of physics dont cease to exist If I'm not there to witness it. And the sound spectrum goes far into ranges beyond my capabilities, which again doesnt mean it isnt making a sound just because I cant hear it.
Well, not really. That's like saying bald is a hairstyle.

What is silence for us, may it be readable for other species. Kindly note, as humans we can hear sounds with certain intensities. So, you can't say with confidence whether it is actually silence or not.
It depends on how edgy you wanna be. In a poetic sense, say things like "silence is the loudest sound" or "The silence spoke louder than words." It makes a perfect metaphor, but In a literal sense, silence is the opposite of sound, and true silence can only be found in a silence chamber or in a vacuum.
