    Say, Speak, Talk, Tell

    (In response to a question from an ESL learner.)

    For a start, go here: speak. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

    There is certainly more to say about this. After I think about is some, I'll tell you more. We'll talk later.


    (Anybody with ideas should feel free to volunteer their ideas.)

    Does anybody want to say more about the differences and similarities between say, speak, talk, and tell?

    After this is there anything more to say? Shall we talk about it?
