Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Colossians 4:6)

But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37)

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor… (Ephesians 4:25)

But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. (Colossians 3:8)

So, our words as Christians are to be helpful, instructive, wholesome, truthful and gracious. The best way to be sure that we have hope of regularly demonstrating these attributes is through much fervent prayer and consistent Bible study. It can be helpful if we distance ourselves from those with the opposite ways of speaking, but on the other hand it is our speech that is often the primary thing that separates us from the ways of the world.
