    "Говорить" is more like "speak", "сказать" is more "say"."Сказать"is usually used for short phrases.For example: "Он сказал:"Привет"."
    "Говорить"is used for more long speeches. For example: "Он долго говорил со мной на тему экономики".
    There are some other verbs in Russian to emphasise speaking, such as "рассказать", "поведать", "сообщить",etc.

    говорить = to talk
    сказать = to say

    Они различаются грамматически:
    1) "сказать" - совершенный вид
    2) "говорить" - несовершенный вид

    它們不同文法的:
    1)"сказать"(完成体)
    2)"говорить"(未完成体)
