Gossip and rumor

Posted by Tom on August 08, 2001

Hi!

My dictionary says that words 'gossip' and 'rumor' are basically uncountable nouns. However these words are used as countable nouns sometimes.

I think all of the following sentences are correct. Do you agree with it?

There is gossip that they may get divorced.
There is a gossip that they may get divorced.
There is rumor that they may get divorced.
There is a rumor that they may get divorced.

Thank you very much for your opinion.

All the best,

Tom
