Is there a generic term/noun for something one says. I'm specifically looking for something you say in a conversation, but maybe there is even a more generic term. I'm looking for a word like 'sentence', 'remark', 'reply', but these are too specific.
- Verbalization (from FrustratedWithFormsDesigner)
- Vocalization (from The Raven)
- Phrase (from Jeremy)
Remark seems good to me, too, but I'm not sure on how you want to use it.
