Gossip as a part of oral conversation does serve important social functions in our daily lives even though it has been regarded as a negative term for a long time. I found out there are many gossips that appeared in the play. Hence, the aim of this study is to discover how the functions of gossip could serve in the play. And one popular Taiwanese trendy drama named The Fierce Wife is the main source of material for me to find out the various functions of gossip. In this study, it shows that gossips do play a very important role in the drama. There are four major functions served by gossip. They serve to play a bridge role to connect two scenes; they also become a source of information. Moreover, through those gossips, audience may have a clue to foresee what is coming up. From the gossips, we can also see how they uphold the traditional values of our society. In addition to these major functions, gossips also have some minor functions in the drama, such as reflecting intimate relationship between characters, strengthening the female role, and producing a sense of pleasure. This study gives us a better understanding of the various functions of gossip in the context which is different from our daily conversation. A play provides a setting for many operations of gossip and it opens the way to discover its roots in ordinary social discourse and makes a kind of interpretation of the text's relation to the audience. It may be considered to contribute to assist in writing scripts for a script writer.
