Definition (Noun) A low soft sound as of whispering or muttering; a whisper; a rustling. In Context "Presently our faithful blackbird will try out a splash of liquid notes in the dimmened and newly oppressive air, and then will come the first and faintest susurrus of rain, like the sound of a blind man's fingers reading braille." John Banville, The Infinities, 2010.
