I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I just have a quick question. Does anyone have another word to describe half chuckling? Like if it was used in conversation and dialogue. Ex: Sam half chuckled, "Well I'm glad the test results came back negative. God could only imagine the problems your offspring would bring forth to the world." I found that my characters are half chuckling a lot, but its just how their personalities are in conversation. They're very sarcastic and always making noises. I really don't know why, it just happened. Help? Thanks!
