When Ehrenfest later encountered Bohr, he was speechless; all he could do was mumble the same word over and over again, "Einstein . . . Einstein . . . Einstein.”
Когда несколько позже Эренфест встретил Бора, тот был неразговорчив; он только снова и снова повторял одно слово: «Эйнштейн...Эйнштейн... Эйнштейн».

The service went well enough, I think (despite the fact that Lucius is profoundly tone deaf and when it comes to singing in tongues can only mumble in them).
Служба прошла без сучка без задоринки (хотя Люцию медведь на ухо наступил: вместо вольного пения на языках он издавал лишь вольное бормотание).

Can't stand to do the same thing every day." Gene added in a mumble, "Or being married to the same woman every day."
Лично я не смог бы жить по расписанию, — и Джин добавил себе под нос: — Или каждый день видеть перед собой физиономию одной и той же женщины.

“Padre,” they would mumble and continue past, glancing back at the road-weary group of backpackers he led.
– Падре… – бормотали они и продолжали свой путь, недоуменно оглядываясь на группу усталых людей с рюкзаками, которую вел вперед человек в белом воротничке священника.

When Jamie asked me about my day, the best I could do was stare intently at my food and mumble one-word answers.
Джейми стал меня расспрашивать, как прошел день, но я лишь уткнулась в тарелку, отделываясь односложными ответами.

Albert waited tensely for some sound—the hiss of escaping air, perhaps—but there was only the steady, droning mumble of the jet engines.
Альберт напряженно ожидал какого-то звука, возможно, шипения утекавшего воздуха, но слышно было лишь ровное гудение двигателей.

Now and then a tree would shake, frightened by a bad dream; the water would mumble something and return to silence.
В тишине вздрагивало дерево, испуганное ночным сновидением, а иногда речная вода неразборчиво бормотала и вновь беззвучно скользила.

He paused long enough to mumble, "This is getting rough," to nobody, and then dived back in.
Распрямившись, он секунду стоял неподвижно, потом, ни к кому не обращаясь, буркнул: «Это мне уже не нравится» – и снова рванулся в бой.
