They call you a gossip VS They call you gossip

Hi,

If you talked about other people, they call you a gossip. Could I also say “If you talked about other people, they call you gossip”? In other words by using “gossip” as adjective?

Thanks a lot for your attention.

Er, I apologise, I’ve just discovered that the adjective is “gossipy”. So the sentence would be “If you talked about other people, they call you gossipy”. It’s fine, isn’t it?

Hi,

I think it sounds better if you say ‘a gossip’. ‘Gossipy’ is just about all right but I would suggest using it like this: a gossipy sort of person.

Hi Alan,

All right. Thank you so much.

I made a mistake in the original sentence, it is actually “If you talk about other people, they call you a gossip”.
