Students writing essays often don't realize that they overuse the word "says," when either indicating a character's comment or referencing a specific source or an author. This handout, with options listed alphabetically, provides other possible terms that provide more precision and formalness. While they are definitely not synonyms, students can usually find at least one that has the right shade of meaning for the situation at hand.
