Say What?! - The Many Faces and Meanings of Said (Requested)
First, let me clear up a rumor. Said is not dead. Said is very much alive. It’s a clever little word with an awesome ability - it can become invisible. Of all of the books I’ve read - and I’ve read many - I’ve never been jolted out of the fictional world because someone said something. That being said, it’s sometimes nice to switch things up and use different words, especially to convey a certain mood. That’s where this guide comes in. I’ve grouped many said synonyms into moods, and within those moods I’ve ranked them by how much emotion they convey. Onwards!
The Scale - little emotion, medium emotion, big emotion
Happily

joked, lilted, giggled, exclaimed, laughed, rejoiced, sang out, jabbered

Sadly

groaned, snivelled, cried, mourned, blubbered, wept, bawled, agonized, lamented, sobbed

Angrily

asserted, retorted, ranted, snapped, growled, hissed, retorted, fumed, seethed, raged, thundered, roared, bellowed, snarled

Bossily

insisted, argued, bossed, dictated, professed, barked, yelled, demanded, ordered, shrieked

Pained

yelped, groaned, whimpered, cried out, howled, screamed, shrieked, wailed, bellowed, roared

Scared

squeaked, gasped, whimpered, stammered, screeched, shrieked

Understanding

consoled, comforted, sympathised, agreed

Begging

beseeched, begged, implored, pleaded

Arguing

grumbled, huffed, countered, argued, disagreed, retorted, agreed

Other Ways To Say It

quipped, raved, sputtered, squawked, asked, answered, explained, inquired, posed, pressed, called, pried, whispered, proposed, yammered, queried, interrogated, replied, breathed, croaked, requested, murmured, responded, retorted, suggested, prayed, purred, hollered, blurted, mumbled, sighed, complained, jeered
