Jenn from www.grammarcheck.net regularly sends me Infographics. Infographics are easy-to-read graphics which contain information that improves your English. Perhaps you saw the last Infographic I re-posted on November 24, 2018, 147 Words to Use instead of “Very”?
Many English students, as well as native English speakers, have found that particular Infographic very helpful and their English vocabulary and expression have improved as a result, especially their written English.
Today, I’m re-posting Jenn’s Infographic, 222 Words to Use instead of “Said”.
It’s hard to believe that English really has so many words to use instead of “said”, isn’t it? Well, why don’t you have a look? You’ll realise that the words listed provide more, or even a lot of, information about the speaker and also about the situation being discussed. You can keep on using “said” if you like. However, English is an extremely rich language. We can express exactly how we feel and think with just a few well-chosen words.
You cannot just substitute the verb “said” for the verbs in the Infographic. Check how each word is used in a sentence. I suggest using www.learnersdictionary.com or google.com.au to make sure you are using the word correctly. After all, they all have a different meaning.
