☆  badmouth  否定的に話す


If you badmouth someone it means that you criticize them when they are not around. In other words, you say negative things about them to other people, when they do not have a chance to defend themselves. This is a fairly simple word to remember right, it’s like “bad” things come out of your mouth, you are saying bad things about others. Here are some examples:

You really should stop badmouthing your ex-boyfriend; it’s over, just move on.
No one will give you a job if you badmouth your previous employer in the interview!
I try not to spend time with him anymore, as he’s always badmouthing someone he’s supposed to be friends with. I guess that means he also badmouths me sometimes!
