catchcry (plural catchcries)
- A slogan, particularly one intended for mass repetition.
1918, Arkady Joseph Sack, The Birth of the Russian Democracy, page 528:
- Monotonous, frequently quite incomprehensible to the dark mass, these catchcries filled the columns of all the papers born as the offspring of the Pravda and German gold; they acted like a curse, rousing, infuriating, confusing the more sincere and the more honest.
