English Usage: Spoke (v) Said (v)

OK, esteemed colleagues, last but not least today, here is a worksheet on differentiating the use of spoke and said. In writing this document, I used  the text–from Paul Brians’ Common Errors in English Usage (Sherwood, OR: William James & Co., 2013)–quite broadly. Students will deal with both of the past tense forms of the verbs that title the worksheet, but also their present tense and the present tense of several other verbs listed in the reading.

There is, in other words, a lot of room to expand this worksheet–easily done because it is in Microsoft Word for your convenience in revising for your classroom’s needs.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
