    to say

    Can I say these sentences in English?
    1. There's nothing more to say.
    2. There's nothing more to say to it.
    3. That's all there is to it.
    4. That's all there is to say it.

    Re: to say

    The first and third are correct. The second and fourth are not.

    Re: to say

    For the benefit of our learners, Tdol meant:

    2. There's nothing more to say to about it.

    4. That's all there is to say about it.
