can u pls tell me the difference between talk and speak, tell and say, and tell me where to use this words correctly and explain the reason....
Speak and talk pretty much mean the same thing. Speak is more formal than talk e.g. You may speak to a business client and talk to a friend.
When we're giving someone instructions or information we use tell: "He told me how to use this software.";"She told me what happened at the meeting." - Notice that tell is used with a person (personal object): "told me" or, for another example "Tell him where you put the file."
When we use say we do not use a personal object: "He said he was tired" NOT, "He said me he was tired"
thank u so much bcos i'm very much confused with that words and how to use it now it's clear once again thank u so much chris
