Strong’s Greek Lexicon

a primary verb; properly, to “lay” forth, i.e. (figuratively) relate (in words [usually of systematic or set discourse; whereas and generally refer to an individual expression or speech respectively; while is properly, to break silence merely, and means an extended or random harangue]); by implication, to mean:—ask, bid, boast, call, describe, give out, name, put forth, say(-ing, on), shew, speak, tell, utter.

Owing to changes in the enumeration while in progress, there were no words left for numbers 2717 and 3203–3302, which were therefore silently dropped out of the vocabulary and references as redundant.
