Hello, I'm wondering if there is a word that categorizes or defines all the words that can be used in conjunction with spoken words.
A few examples of what would be in that category:
Incase I didn't write that clearly enough, here is another example:

The words 'said' and 'replied' would be examples of ___ ?
These are called 'reporting verbs'.
