The hesitation between the end of a performance and audience applause. Clapprehension is caused when people are afraid of premature eclapulation. Extreme clapprehension can result in long, awkward pauses.
Band member: "What was with the awkward silence after we finished playing?"
Friend: "All the pauses in your songs gave everybody in the room an extreme case of clapprehension."

"I'd rather be clapprehensive than an early finisher."
