I can't think of one time when I have used that word.

It's a verb. I don't like verbs.

I haven't used it in a long time, but I probably used it a lot back in the 70's when I taught swimming lessons. There was a lot of sputtering going on back then. Ha! Image in content

About 2 times in my life.

I've noticed my coffee maker can sputter. It also growls, gurgles, and hisses.

Every now and then, and usually in reference to someone, including me, spitting words and sounds out when they get really angry and or flustered.

I cannot remember saying it in recent years. When I had dirt bikes they could sputter. Why do you ask viv?

I don't know. Yes I do...

I was making peanutbutter toast for breakfast and I was trying to think of a post. I thought "have you ever tasted a peanut's butter?" - my mind went to sputter and what an under used word that is.

Then It spiraled out of control from there, so we ended up with 7 posts.

But I seem to be sputtering now, so I will stop.
