A VERY, VERY BRIEF OVERVIEW INDIRECT SPEECH
An indirect speech sentence is a complex sentence structure consisting of the main clause (REPORTING CLAUSE (1)) and a subordinate clause (REPORTED CLAUSE (2)) which functions as a direct object. Han Solo said (1), “I love you, Lea (2).” Han Solo told Lea (1) that he loved her (2).
REPORTED CLAUSE Depending on the sentence discourse type of the reported clause (statement, question, command, exclamation), the object nominal clause can be structurally realized in several ways:
CHANGES IN INDIRECT SPEECH When converting DIRECT SPEECH TO INDIRECT SPEECH, changes occur because the conditions under which the utterance was produced changed: BACKSHIFT of tenses (if the reporting verb is in the past tense) CHANGES OF PRONOUNS (central and demonstrative) ADJUNCTS OF TIME AND PLACE ALSO CHANGE now > then today > that day here > there Etc.
BACKSHIFT is optional if the time reference of the original utterance is still valid at the time of reporting: King Leonidas said that he was/*is a citizen of the world. Leonidas said that nothing could/can harm a freedom- loving man. I didn’t know that our meeting is/was next Thursday.
INDIRECT SPEECH LAST TWO EXERCISES
PAGE 177 – exercise 22 (a-d) She said that she had to hurry as her father was always furious if any of them were late for meals. My uncle said that if I was short of money, he could lend me $50 and I didn’t have to worry about paying back. He warned us (that) we’d better take our sleeping bags as we might have to sleep out. Tom said that he’d have enjoyed the journey if the man next to him hadn’t snored all the time
PAGE 177 – exercise 22 (e-g) I asked if I should write to Ann. She said (that) I needn’t because she would see her the next day. Peter said (that) he wished he had something to eat. His sister said that he’d only just had lunch and she didn’t know how he could always be hungry. He said that he must leave (would have to leave) town early the next morning because he mustn’t be late at the meeting. He asked what the problem (was) that most students were complaining about (was).
PAGE 177 – exercise 22 (h-i) He suggested that she cut her hair because she’d find it much easier to get a job if she looked tidy. He said that he had to rush home after the lecture.
PAGE 178 – exercise 23 (a-d) He replied that she might not believe that, but he’d never been to a disco in his life, as he was afraid he just wouldn’t be able to stand the noise. John told him it was clearly high time he went to one, adding that she’d take him where he’d be surprised at the civilized atmosphere. He replied that it sounded great, but if he went out that evening, he wondered who was to do all the work he was supposed to do, pointing out that it had to be done by the following morning. He asked who I was doing it for and if it could wait, adding that she had had a lot of work one of the previous days, but she hadn’t let it spoil her evening.
PAGE 178 – exercise 23 (e-h) Willie retorted that if his work spoilt his evening, he wouldn’t be an architect, explaining that he often had to work in the evenings because some of his clients do not like (did not like) to be kept waiting.. She asked Helen what she would do if Ben was too late to drive her to the airport. She admitted that she didn’t know what she would do if Ben was late, but she added she thought he ought to be there in good time, because he was (is) seldom late. He replied that that was true, but that he might have trouble with his car, adding that he must catch that plane, whatever happened.
PAGE 178 – exercise 23 (i-l) He said that Helen didn’t need to worry because Ben wouldn’t be late. He said that he didn’t need to go back to his office after lunch, so that he was at their disposal then. Her father complained on the phone that she couldn’t have arranged to come at a worse time, explaining that he couldn’t possibly meet her at the airport that Friday, and he added that he had just come from Japan and there would be several business maters that he must see before that weekend, Sheila asked a passing driver if he could give her a lift because her car had broken down and the driver told her to hop in.
LET’S FINISH IT! THE VERY LAST EXERCISES OF THE COURSE!!!
PAGE 178 – exercise 23 (i-l) He asked her if she would like to stop for a coffee, but she answered (that) she’d much rather he drove straight on, so she could keep an important appointment.
