Today's Word of the Day means...
murmur mur·mur (mûr'mər)
An abnormal sound heard on auscultation of the heart, lungs, or blood vessels.
in phonetics, a speech sound or quality used in some languages, produced by vibrating vocal cords that are less tense than in normal speech, which produces local turbulence in the airstream resulting in a compromise between full voice and whisper. English speakers produce a vocal fry when suggesting ghost wails with an oo-sound. See also voice; whisper.
