Highly irritating word used by "people of a certain class" to describe the act of talking to someone who isn't a complete moron and can reciprocate said act. The word is one of about fifteen or so (for instance, "physically", "actually" and "grim") that are used excessively in conversations that do not call for their presence. To use the word "banter" to describe talking to someone, or, worse still, to use it proactively (see below) is a crime of speech and should garnish you a mother-fucker of a kick arse from all those around you who recognise you for the nob you are.
Descriptively: "Yeah, we had a great time last night - sank a few pints and had a bit o' banter..."
Proactively: "Let's go out tonight, sink a few pints and have a bit o' banter!" (note the elevated excitement in the proactive usage, indicated by the exclamation mark)
