Word of the Day – 19th March

The word of the day today issmattering“.

I found it in the book “Mr Stink” by David Walliams. It was in the sentence “Mother was in full flow now, and she smiled as she recieved a smattering of applause for this comment from the people over thirty in the audience”.

Smattering can mean slight knowledge or a small amount of something. In this case it means a small amount of applause.
