goss

Definition

Slang

  • noun gossip (in the sense of rumour, scandal and chatter, not of a person). A vogue term which appeared around 1988 and established itself in the language of teenagers and writers in teenage magazines. Although the shortened form resembles the abbreviated journalese of Variety magazine in the USA, it appears to be a native British coinage.
