    Tell or say

    Tell or say



    Say can refer to any type of speech. Say is never followed directly by a person as an object: you must use 'say something to someone' for this.


    Tell is used to report that someone has given information or an order. The verb tell is always followed by the person that the information or order is given to.


    Put in tell and say in the correct form.
