    Something uttered is something said at a normal level.  When you mutter, it's something almost whispered.

  • Depends on context.. if you use the word, "utter" when speaking.. that would be very different from muttering :P

    When you say quietly " he is asking baiting questions so he can find out how I argue" that is uttering.

    If you say that in a non understanding way that is muttering.

    When speaking of ewes, the utter is under, when speaking of mutter, she prefers daddy under. This post was edited by ProblemCh1ld at January 7, 2017 4:39 PM MST
