Literally: “musical beat” – hand – shout – gather
Alternately: Applause and cheering. Vigorous praise and approval.
Notes: 喝, in and of itself, is interesting. One dictionary I use translates it as “scold,” but a little deeper investigation suggests that this comes from Zen teaching, when students were “scolded” with sudden shouts. Meanwhile, a 喝食 (which can be pronounced kashiki, kasshiki, or katsujiki) is just a call to meals.
