Non-diagetic sounds and Diagetic sounds

Diagetic sounds are sounds in film like for example  having a conversation.

Non-diagetic sounds are the sounds that have no origins in sounds like car crashes.

This compared to trans-diagetic is the imperfect world external then internal for example a sound out of a radio could be heard outside the actual movie then it can suddenly be in the movie with someone in it listening to it in a car.

I think all movies should always have at least 1 or two of these types of sounds in their movies at all times.
