Defamation includes libel and slander and is generally, whether written or spoken, any intentional false communication that harms a person's reputation or decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person.
It can even be defamatory to question a women's "honour" which is pretty laughable now.
There can be strict time limits, (a few weeks) in which you must take action to protect your rights in a defamation case. Ask a lawyer.
In a defamation law suit a claim must generally be false and have been made to someone other than the person defamed.
Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander, and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel.
