Reply to "'Clap for her' or 'clap her'"

Yale Wale,

Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary gives several definitions for "clap" as a transitive verb, one of which is "applaud".  I have never heard it used this way, so I can't recommend it.  Use (2).

In my experience, "clap her", with no modification, means "strike her".
