IWuimSait- ENGLAND: An eavesdropper is one who listens in on someone's conversation. The name goes back to a time in England when it was the law that there had to be enough room between houses so that the eaves of the roof could drip water on the owner's property. With houses loosely built, anyone standing in these spaces could listen in on what was going on in the house.
