Глаголы говорения: say, speak, tell, talk

Путаетесь в употреблении глаголов say speak tell и talk? Давай те разберем разницу между ними. Что у них общего и чем они отличаются? Употребление глаголов говорения (say, speak, tell, talk) всегда было проблемой для изучающих английский язык. В целом эти слова переводятся одинаково и разница между ними не в переводе, а в сочетаемости с другими словами (collocation) и логике употребления (usage) Ошибки в использовании этих слов являются типичными при изучении английского языка. Очень упрощенно глаголы say и tell используются для передачи информации кому-то. Если указано кому я сообщаю информацию, то используем tell или say TO. Если объект передачи информации подразумевается, но не указан, то say. Глаголы speak и talk во многом схожи, но второе обозначает общение между несколькими людьми. Нас же в первую очередь интересуют устойчивые выражения с этими глаголами и именно им и будет посвящено наше упражнение.
