Examples of muttering in a Sentence

  1. George Orwell, 1984:

    It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face ... was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime ...

  2. Leonardo DiCaprio:

    So I came in the next day and Jack’s hair was all over the place, jack Nicholson was muttering to Jack Nicholson and the prop guy tipped me off that Jack Nicholson had a fire extinguisher, a bottle of whisky, some matches and a handgun somewhere. So I sat down at the table not knowing what to expect, and Jack Nicholson set the table on fire after pouring whisky all over the place and stuck a gun in my face.
