Not on speaking term (please see below the explanation and related link)


Explanation:
If you are going to say that " A" has stopped the relation completely with "B" then you can use the word " break up" . But if you mean that "A" refuses to talk with "B" then you can say : " A" is no longer on speaking term with "B" ....
