Clap·ter

i can't believe it's not a real word...

(this is the first in an ongoing series, which was inspired by my wife)

clap·ter
n.
1. a significant amount of clapping

usage example:
the stadium erupted with clapter when my name was announced.

the following pertinent dialogue is something i actually overheard in real life. i'm not even kidding. it's true. (ok, technically it's not "true," but it might as well be):

LITTLE KID: "mommy, what does 'applause' mean?"

WISE PARENT: "that's just a really pretentious way of saying 'clapter' sweetie."

LITTLE KID: [nodding] "ooooh, ok."
