Half of guests not turning up at first - rudely, one could be put out (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tongue

(Other definitions for tongue that I've seen before include "Speech" , "Mouth organ; language" , "spit" , "Organ of taste" , "Go tune up what's in the mouth" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
