    To maliciously say something about someone. 

    If you were to accuse your neighbor of being a pedophile because you want to ruin his reputation, that would be slander. If you were to say that he’s incompetent at his work then that wouldn’t be slender. You can call him a cheater and that wouldn’t be slander.

    Slander is telling something which is damaging to somebody's character that is not true. Slander is often used as a legal term you can get sued for it if the person can prove that what you're saying is a lie and that you have damaged that person either financially or in other matter you can get sued for slander but it's telling an untruth about another person and publishing that untruth.
