Synonyms for Said

Communication is an essential part of our daily lives. We ourselves communicate,
and others communicate to us through words, but also through gestures, facial
expressions, body language, writings, texts, media, etc.

Especially today, in an age of technology and instant communication, more than ever people are sharing what they think and saying what they want when they want with the most liberty.

It’s understandable why you would look for synonyms, or other ways of saying, the
word “said”, or “says”. “Said” is the past-tense of “says”. So, we would use it if we are recalling or repeating something someone said at a previous time.

For example:

  • “My doctor said my health has been improving over the last few
    weeks.”

To use “said”, means someone was simply speaking, or talking. Of course, we know
there are various ways of speaking, right?

We could SHOUT! We could whisper… We could speak, loud, low, fast, slow, carefully, carelessly, angrily, lovingly, and the list goes on, and there is a way of describing each and every type of manner spoken.

However, “said” is more general. It means the words were simply spoken or
declared. Below are a few synonyms you could use for “said” as well as examples of how you can add some descriptors.
