Synonyms of "Remark" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between remark and comment ?
A: A comment is just a add on to something”he commented on my shoes today”and for remark would be more like “he made a clever remark about that book”
Q: What is the difference between remark and comment and observe and mention ?
A: Remark, comment and mention are all very similar. Remark is used less and is seen as less casual- some people might think it sounds very formal. It sounds more natural to talk about someone's comments instead of someone's remarks.

Observe can't be used in the same way and is not associated with saying something. "My observations were that..." = "I thought that..." It is more to do with what you see and think.

Mention is more useful when talking about something related, but not part of the main conversation. It refers to something without talking about it in detail. "I need to mention that to him later." = I need to make him aware of that. "She mentioned food earlier and now I'm hungry" = she only spoke about food briefly, and now I'm hungry.

Hope this helps! The differences are very subtle.
Q: What is the difference between remark and mention ?
A: They have contextual differences.

You can make a "clever remark", but saying you made a "clever mention" instead would be improper english.

When talking about something, you can mention additional details, but you can't remark additional details.
Q: What is the difference between remark and comment ?

Q: What is the difference between remark and review and comment ?
A: Review = Analyse, in its whole meaning. It usually implies that you speak or write at length, not just a few phrases.
Comment = Give a description or opinion about a certain topic, usually in a short way. Maybe some phrases, or just one.
Remark = It's like comment, but much shorter. When you remark something, you give a comment about a very specific thing inside a topic (usually because, in your opinion, that thing was wrong).

Take into account that these 3 verbs have equivalent nouns, which are the same word: A review, a comment & a remark.

Example:

"The specialists have recently reviewed this new film. In general, the comments about it are very positive; however, they remarked that the plot of the story could have been better."

Hope with this example you clearly see the difference. :)
