Word of the Week

Susurrus: noun. a whispering or rustling sound

For example:

Dread creeps in; the ear instinctively fastens on anything, whether fire-hiss or bird call or susurrus of leaves, that will save it from this unknown emptiness.— The Economist, “People crave silence, yet are unnerved by it,” 17 May 2018

I read this yesterday in Paul Johnson’s Heroes.
