HataReizu at 2020-05-10 15:35:31 UTC Of course it is, all you're doing is combining the nominalised form of こぼす with 話. Just because it's not a dictionary entry doesn't mean you can't say it. jakobd2 at 2020-05-11 17:29:06 UTC 大辞林 lists 零し屋 as a person who immediately complains, so 零し話 seems legit to me. And if you google it there are also various examples of this word used in various texts. Log in to reply.
