  1. chat

    Most of these words are onomatopoetic. The cackle of a hen, the gabble of a goose, the chatter of a magpie, the babble of a running stream, as applied to human speech, indicate a rapid succession of what are to the listener meaningless sounds. Blab and blurt (commonly blurt out) refer to the letting out of what the lips can no longer keep in; blab, of a secret; blurt out, of passionate feeling. To chat is to talk in an easy, pleasant way, not without sense, but without special purpose. Chatting is the practise of adults, prattling that of children. To prate is to talk idly, presumptuously, or foolishly, but not necessarily incoherently. To jabber is to utter a rapid succession of unintelligible sounds, generally more noisy than chattering. To gossip is to talk of petty personal matters, as for pastime or mischief. To twaddle is to talk feeble nonsense. To murmur is to utter suppressed or even inarticulate sounds, suggesting the notes of a dove, or the sound of a running stream, and is used figuratively of the half suppressed utterances of affection or pity, or of complaint, resentment, etc. Compare SPEAK.

How to use chat in a sentence?

  1. Patrick Wardle:

    Adversaries came to the realization they don’t need to persist, if they could do a one-time pull and exfiltrate all your chat messages and your contact and your passwords, it’s almost game over anyways, right?

  2. Will Wu:

    It's hard to get everybody to install the same game, then find friends to play with and it's hard to chat, so even if you're playing together, it doesn't really feel like you're hanging out. Snapchat has the right ingredients to break down these barriers.

  3. Keith Salisbury:

    The war fighter needs a decision : ‘ Do I engage or not ? ’ the process in general is a bunch of chat windows open on a computer screen — about 20 or more — and then a bunch of people start looking into systems to find out, ‘ Where is that target ? What are the surrounding facilities ? Are there schools ? Are there hospitals ? Are there civilian populations ? What munition would be appropriate ? Do we engage or not ? By using technology developed by private companies, The Air Force says it saved time and manpower, and even saved nearly a million dollars of fuel per week. ( REUTERS) As part of a Defense Innovation Advisory Board, leaders from technology companies like Pivotal Software went to the Combined Air Operations Center( CAOC) at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar to see how they could help. What they encountered was startling. They saw lots of whiteboards.

  4. Mia Love:

    The President's behavior towards me made me wonder : What did The President have to gain by saying such a thing about a fellow Republican, it was not really about asking The President to do more, was it ? Or was it something else ? Well Mr. The President, we'll have to chat about that.

  5. Though Cara:

    According to Prof Betz's team at the Institute for Human Genetics, the syndrome is caused by a mutation to one of three genes - PADI3, TGM3 and TCHH. (SWNS.com) Taylor was born with no hair but began sprouting tufts of soft baby fuzz when she was around five months old. Rather than falling out and growing back straight and brown, like her parents' hair, Taylor's bright blond locks grew and grew. At one point we had a chat with my mother-in-law who said, 'There is a photo on the internet that looks like Taylor,'.
