Synonyms for Sins of the Tongue.

morologia, used only once in the N.T., is foolish talking, but
this in the Biblical sense of the word foolish, which implies that it
is also sinful. It is conversation which is first insipid, then
corrupt. It is random talk, which naturally reveals the vanity and sin
of the heart.

aischrologia, also used once, means any kind of disgraceful
language, especially abuse of others. In classical Greek it sometimes
means distinctively language which leads to lewdness.

eutrapelia, occurring once, originally meant versatility in
conversation. It acquires, however, an unfavorable meaning, since
polished, refined conversation has a tendency to become evil in many
ways. The word denotes, then, a subtle form of evil-speaking, sinful
conversation without the coarseness which frequently accompanies it,
but not without its malignity.
