Notes: I’ve run across this word, but couldn’t define it well
The word chunter means “to mutter, grumble, or chatter”
Our word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
Our word is considered an imitative word – saying “chunter” several times run together in a low voice can sound like muttering.
