I'll revise the sentences and then I'll post them back to you. Can you please suggest a site where all reporting verbs (to be used in indirect speech, especially when giving instructions or advice) are listed? I don't want to use "tell, ask" all the time. Thank you.

  1. I don't know of any website with such a specialized list, but looking up those over-used verbs in a thesaurus will give you many choices:

    http://thesaurus.com/browse/say

    http://thesaurus.com/browse/tell

    http://thesaurus.com/browse/ask

    You can change the word in the search box to find others.
