Hey everyone, I'm trying my damnedest to figure out the right word for this situation, but I can't figure it out. I want a verb to replace something like, "she said with honeyed words," or "she said with a sugary tone." Even if I replace 'said' with a stronger verb, it still sounds too passive for the narrative voice, given the situation. Can anyone think of a verb that means all of that in one word? 'Cuz I sure can't. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone in advance!
