- (transitive or intransitive) To whisper or to hiss softly.
- 1837, Frederick Marryat, Snarleyyow; Or, The Dog Fiend:
- But before Smallbones was summoned, he had time to whisper to one or two of the conspirators "He's gone." It was enough; in less than a minute the whisper was passed throughout the cutter. "He's gone!' was siffilated above and below, until it met the ears of even Corporal Van Spitter, who had it from a marine.
