So what if it was: "I am giddy." Would reported speech be like: He says that he is giddy? But then what would be: "He ate a taco?" Wouldn't it be report speech to right?

@hba In the example it shows the ending of the sentence move to the begging. So say if: "Go eat a taco" she told him. Reported speech would be like: She told him to go eat a taco. Right?

  • anonymous
hey Opcode, if that sentence referred to your friend John, then the reported speech would be something like: Opcode said that his friend John ate a taco OR Opcode said that John ate a taco.
hba
  • hba
@Opcode "I am giddy." He says that he is giddy. Is correct :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
And yes, 'She told him to go eat a taco.' is correct.

this is my answer to Aravind's question: Henry asked his father Abel if he had written a will. Abel said that he had written it and locked it up in the bureau. When Henry enquired about the contents of the will, Abel said it didn't matter because he was thinking of destroying the will and making another one.
