  1. One who lays slates, or whose occupation is to slate buildings.
  2. Any terrestrial isopod crustacean of the genus Porcellio and allied genera; a sowbug.
  3. A harsh critic; one who slates or denigrates something.
    • 1901, The Critic (volume 39, page 562)
      Plain speaking, now and then, is very necessary. The author will call the critic a “blackguard slater," of course, but he need not be a blackguard. Ferocity of language only hurts his effect.
