INTRODUCTION

A reported command is sometimes called an indirect command.

 

Rules for Changing Commands and Requests into Indirect Speech,

1. We can report the words of a speaker in two ways:

  • In Direct speech: We may quote his actual words in inverted commas by placing a comma before the remark.
  • In Indirect speech: We may report what he said without quoting his exact words.

 

2. The reporting verb is changed into command, order, say, enable, submit, warn, ask, advise, invite, beg, teach, and forbid. in imperative sentences that have commands.

 

3. Change of pronoun

  • I – he/she
  • we – they
  • my – his/her
  • your – my
  • our – their
  • me – him/her
  • us – them, etc.

 

4. Change of time and place words

  • now – then
  • here – there
  • today – that day
  • this morning – that morning
  • yesterday – the next day
  • next week – the following week
  • next month – the following month
