Today’s word of the day is mumblement, a low, indistinct utterance or mumbling speech. Of the places we see mumblement being used, we are particularly fond of this little description of the indolent: “idle yawning assistant, with legs stretched out, half asleep, mumblement, jumblement and all” (from The Bertrams by Anthony Trollope). A synonym of mumblement is mussitation, a noun form of mussitate.
