Backbiting, gossiping and nattering are social practices, collective behaviors, tranche de vie which describe a certain socio- historical context and mentality and which go beyond the dichotomy public/ private. These social phenomena are to all intents and purposes forms of verbal voyeurism; they are universal pulsions and a sort of discursive intrusion through which the private sphere becomes part of the public one. The study and analysis of the flow of verbal communication is extremely important for the social sciences because it favors the understanding of the hidden tissues of intersubjective relationships and the articulate reconstruction of the different forms of backbiting with their tight connection to social reality and daily life.
