Q: Please show me example sentences with "mingle", "gossip", and "overwhelm".
A: "Do you want coffee with milk? No, I don't like to mingle both drinks."

Mingle isn't wrong, but "mix" is a better word. "Mingle" is used mainly when talking about social interaction. Here is a sentence with "mingle":

"At recess, the children are allowed to play outside and mingle with one another."

"There are a loads of gossips in the office. We have to find a way to cut them off". Here is a corrected version:

"There is loads of gossip in the office. We have to find a way to stop them."

I think I understand what you meant with "cut them off", but you used it incorrectly. "Cut them off" refers to something being forbidden or taken away, while in this sentence, the gossip is being stopped rather than taken away. Here is a sentence with "cut them off":

"After our children did bad in school, we had to cut them off from the Internet."

"You cannot overwhelm the folk's voice."

I think you mean to say "people's voice"! Overwhelm is a bit of a strange word here... I would say "silence" is more correct.

"You will overwhelm the dog if you play with him too much."

Overwhelm can mean "excite"!

Please ask me to explain anything that is confusing!

Synonyms of "Gossip" and their differences

A: Gossip is passing on information you have heard. A rumour is also that but the information has not been confirmed so it might not be true. There is less certainty about a rumour than gossip.

For example:

"She spread a rumour that her neighbour is having an affair with the postman." She doesn't know if the neighbour is having an affair or not, but tells others it anyway.

"Gossip is about people wanting to deliberately cause bad feelings between people by telling them what they might (or might not) have said about eachother. Gossip is considered to be evil. In Islam, gossip is regarded as a sin and is forbidden. It spreads bad feelings of distrust amongst people, so we should avoid people who spread rumors and speak badly of others. We should always remember that only telling the truth is one of the ways to enter paradise."
You originally wrote it fairly well. The best advice I have is to read your phrasing out loud to try and detect run-on sentences, and make sure you watch out for past-tense and present-tense words such as 'wants deliberately' should be 'wanting to deliberately'. Overall, good job and good luck!
