The obscure word of the week is mytacism

This week’s obscure English word is mytacism.

It’s a term referring to speech, specifically over-use of the sound ‘m’. Originally it was applied in the ancient world, but today it’s probably useful when people make irritating ‘mmmmmmm’ noises while eating.

Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments using this word.
