Learn to tell rumour (7)


I believe the answer is:


'rumour' is the definition.
(I know that rumour can be written as hearsay)

'learn to tell' is the wordplay.
'learn' becomes 'hear' (synonyms).
'to tell' becomes 'say' (synonyms).

(Other definitions for hearsay that I've seen before include "Common talk" , "Kind of rumour, makes bad evidence" , "rumoured" , "Gossip or idle talk - it's not evidence" , "product of grapevine" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
