    Re: do or make? Say or tell? Miss or lose?

    Just trying

    tell needs an object pronoun and "say" doesn't need an object pronoun, but if you want to add, you have to put first "to".

    Examples

    I told you not to go
    I said something to you.

    "say" and "tell" mean to speak words, but "tell" also means to give some information.

    Tell me your name
    Tell me how can I help you.

    For do / Make - Follow this link :

    Miss / Lose

    Miss : Something you could have got but missed. I missed the moring train.

    Lost : Something you already have and aftersometime you lost that. : I lost this opportunity.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.
