Etymology[edit]

prate +‎ -er

Noun[edit]

prater (plural praters)

  1. A person who prates; a chatterer.
    • (Can we date this quote?), Shakespeare, Henry V, act 5, scene 2:
      Dear Kate, take a fellow of plain and uncoined constancy; for he perforce must do thee right, because he hath not the gift to woo in other places: ... a speaker is but a prater; a rhyme is but a ballad. A good leg will fall; a straight back will stoop; a black beard will turn white; a curled pate will grow bald; a fair face will wither; a full eye will wax hollow: but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon.
