100 Words Other Than “Said”

Hello everyone! So, I was doing this writing workshop in my English class the other day, and this time we discussed the word “said.” It’s not a bad word – there are just so many other words that you could use. It doesn’t really say anything about how the person is saying it – it’s just kind of there, and since there already are quotation marks, it’s slightly redundant.

So I’ve compiled a long list of words to use other than “said,” and this is a list that I frequently use when I can’t think of any other word than “said.”

("No More "Said"")
(“No More “Said””)

Bear in mind though, the word isn’t evil, and sometimes it is the only word you can use – but usually people use to much of it, and there are other, more appropriate, words.

So… here goes!

  1. Exclaim
  2. Cry
  3. Repeat
  4. Respond
  5. Reply
  6. Whisper
