Definition of mastication:
Pelle could hear Strom attacking his bread with great bites, and chewing it with a smacking sound; and suddenly in the intervals of mastication, another sound was audible; a curious bellowing, which was interrupted every time the man took a bite; it sounded like a child eating and crying simultaneously.- "Pelle the Conqueror, Vol. 2", Martin Anderson Nexo.
