HEY can anyone tell me rules for converting into reported speech with examples.

Reported Speech (also referred to as 'indirect speech') refers to a sentence reporting what someone has said. It is almost always used in spoken English.

  • If the reporting verb (i.e. said) is in the past, the reported clause is in a past form. This form is usually one step back into the past from the original.

    For example:

    • He said the test was difficult.
    • She said she watched TV every day.
  • If simple present, present perfect or the future is used in the reporting verb (i.e. says) the tense is retained.

    For example:

    • He says the test is difficult.
    • She has said that she watches TV every day.
