I never tell a lie.
Is it correct to say "I never tell a lie." ? If so, is there a difference between "I never lie" and "I never tell a lie."?
'To lie' means 'to tell a lie'.
I tell a lie (or that's a lie): British informal used to correct oneself immediately when one realizes that one has made an incorrect remark:
I never used to dream—I tell a lie, I did dream when I was young.
I agree with Mr. Sanjay.
In your case, as I was taught, there is no difference in two types of sentences.
I never lie: 'lie' used as verb.
I never tell a lie: lie used as noun.
