Attenzione
Quando si usa il verbo To Say, questo viene seguito da un pronome personale soggetto (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they)
Quando usiamo il verbo tell, questo viene seguito da un pronome personale complemento (me, you, him, her, it, us, uoy, them)
Entrambi possono essere seguiti da un nome proprio
