Slander

Defaming another via the spoken word.  Damaging the reputation of an individual or entity by making false statements while speaking to another person.  Unlike libel, which is generally considered to occur when the defamation occurs through published, written, broadcast or streamed medium or media, slander occurs through oral communications.
