Okay, I admit; I like quotative verbs. Of course, I would prefer to avoid using 'said' all the time.
AFAIK there is no canonical question asking for general alternatives to 'said'. I've compiled quite a list (over 400 so far), and am wondering, would it be interesting to "ask" a question to turn into a community wiki collecting verbs that can be (ab)used as quotatives?
(Or, is there such a question already that I haven't found?)
