    Go to freedictionary.com and type in each word. You will get thorough explanations about use of each.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Look here: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...ifference.html

    Generally "speak" is to say words out loud, the act of speech; "say" is to speak to someone; and "tell" is to instruct someone or inform someone about something.
