    Using TO

    We say ...
    say to, speak to but we don't say tell to - why not?

    How do I know which verbs can be followed by to?

    Re: Using TO

    Hi, I'm a Brit, but not a teacher:

    How about: " Why don't you tell it to the others?"

    That works for me!

    "Go tell it to the Marines!" = a scornful expression of disbelief
