Learn English – The sound made when eating


I have a few people around me that are really loud eaters. I'm not telling them to be quiet while eating, of course – these aren't my children, but I digress.

What the the word for the sounds made when eating?

Best Answer

  • munch generally noisy eating, lots of saliva is involved and the person forgets to close their mouth -- not attractive.
  • crunch a sound usually associated with eating crisps (BrEng), chips (AmEng) or a juicy crisp apple
  • slurp the sound you make when eating liquids, especially true for soups or sucking a soft drink through a straw.
