no no no GOD no
EACH OF THESE WORDS HAS A SPECIFIC MEANING AND SHOULD ONLY BE USED WHEN NEEDED
DON’T USE THESE FOR DIALOGUE TAGS

NNGOD I REMEMBER THIS FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL.
what PK said is not only right, but accepted by professional writers who write books and give lectures on this shit. (according to mom)
all these words will pop out and interrupt the flow of the writing. said is invisible.

AUUURHG THE ONE WRITING RULE I WISH I COULD JUST OBLITERATEit is totally okay to just use ‘said’ over and over, in fact it’s usually a testament to the actual writing. if you’re not flowering it up with a million different words you are left simply with the characterisation and the events, and that’s what your reader is interested in anyway
flowery words just obfuscate that point and trip them up 
use these words for specific referential narration but seriously DO NOT EVER FEEL OBLIGATED TO USE THESE ATTACHED TO DIALOGUE TAGS

^what vec and thislousytshirt and princekarkat said.

The last few comments have it right.
"Said" is like punctuation. Use only what’s necessary. If you use too many descriptors, you end up with purple prose.
For whatever reason, people always complain about the overuse of “said”. But they fail to take into account that changing every instance of “said” to a different verb would make the writing look ridiculous.
