I have English question! What's difference between call, say, tell, talk?

I have trouble distinguish between them :(
call her
talk to her
tell her or
say her or say it to her
aren't they all same?

  • I'll try to answer.

    "Call her" means that she is not here and you need to use a phone or video chat.
    "Talk to her" means a two-way conversation of any sort.
    "Tell her" means you have something particular to communicate.
    "Say it to her" is the same as "tell her".

  • Call
    If you were to call someone it would mean you would say it in such a way to make them come over
    Example- she called her over to the dining room

    Or you would use call if you were referring to talking to someone on the phone
    Example- just give them a call (phone call)

    Say
    If you were to say something to someone it would just mean talk to them in present tense
    Example- don't say that to her
    Example 2- how about you say to her
    Tell her is basically the same thing
