I need some synonyms of talk about. For instance, “today I will talk about two topics.”

The context is the speaker at a conference is talking about three topics to the audience. It is a speech. I am sick of using "talk about" so I wanted to use another expression.

Right now, I am thinking of “express”, “address” or “deliver” but I am not sure whether they are desirable. Could you please advise me? I need some very formal words. Thank you.

If this post has any problems, please let me know.

    address, discuss, present, explore, cover, explain, review, consider, outline... It's all pretty much a matter of opinion / stylistic choice. – FumbleFingers Mar 14 '18 at 13:59
  • @FumbleFingers Thank you so much. Is “express or deliver two topics” awkward? I tried to google but I could not find enough examples. – Mango Gummy Mar 14 '18 at 14:01

    @Lawrence Hi, Lawrence. Thank you. The context is the speaker at a conference is talking about three topics to the audience in the introduction. It is a speech. I am sick of using "talk about" so I wanted to use another expression. But maybe talk about is the best choice. – Mango Gummy Mar 14 '18 at 14:06

I would suggest for "talk about", some of these:

  • mention
  • say something about
  • point out
  • bring up to your attention ...
