mussitation (noun) – The act or an instance of murmuring or muttering.

Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : Mussitation, a very rare noun, derives from Late Latin mussitātiō (stem mussitātiōn-) “suppression of the voice, silence.” The sense of “moving the lips in silence but as if speaking” is a modern medical sense dating from the late 19th century. Late Latin mussitātiō derives from the Latin verb mussitāre “to speak in a low tone, grumble, take no notice of, bear silently.” Mussitation entered English in the mid-17th century.
