    Default word search

    I am looking for a word that means someone/two people are talking about someone else in a way that they let the other person hear about it. Usually done to an enemy.

    If there's a single word, it escapes me, B.

    They were saying mean-spirited/mean things about him/her and they made no attempt [whatsoever] to keep their voices down.

    That's because there is one here at home. "Parinig" (pa - to; rinig - hear); so it would mean like "to let someone hear".

    There may well be one in English too and there likely are more concise ways of saying that than mine. But those too, escape me, B. Brain's on a holiday, I guess.
