Grammar Contents Unit 12: Reported Speech & Contable-uncountable nouns

  1. 1. 1 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 The two most common reporting verbs are “say” and “tell”. They are usually in the past simple. Sara says, “I am going to buy a new car next week.”” (DIRECT) Reported clause: Sara said (that) she was going to buy a new car the following week. (INDIRECT) or Sara told me (that) she was going to buy a new car the following week. (INDIRECT) → With the verb tell we need an object pronoun
  2. 2. 2 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 Although the most common reporting verbs are say and tell, there are a number of other reporting verbs such as “explain”, “assure”, “refuse”, “promise”, “warn”, etc. that can be used instead of say or tell to make reported statements and questions. STRUCTURES: subject + reporting verb + (that) + clause □ She explained (that) she had been abroad at the time. (‘that’ is optional) subject + reporting verb + direct object + (that) + clause □ They assured us (that) there would be no delay. subject + reporting verb + infintive □ He refused to work at weekends. subject + reporting verb + direct object + infintive □ She reminded me to come to the meeting.
  3. 3. 3 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 Usually, the tense in reported speech is one tense back in time from the tense in direct speech: She said, "I am tired." She said that she was tired. DIRECT SPEECH Simple present "I always drink coffee", she said Present continuous "I am reading a book", he explained. Simple past "Bill arrived on Saturday", he said. Present perfect "I have been to Spain", he told me. Past perfect "I had just turned out the light," he explained. Present perfect continuous They complained, "We have been waiting for hours". Past continuous "We were living in Paris", they told me. Future "I will be in Geneva on Monday", he said Future continuous She said, "I'll be using the car next Friday". REPORTED SPEECH Simple past She said that she always drank coffee. Past continuous He explained that he was reading a book Past perfect He said that Bill had arrived on Saturday Past perfect He told me that he had been to Spain Past perfect He explained that he had just turned out the light. Past perfect continuous They complained that they had been waiting for hours. Past perfect continuous They told me that they had been living in Paris. Present conditional He said that he would be in Geneva on Monday. Conditional continuous She said that she would be using the car next Friday.
  4. 4. 4 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 NOTE: We do not need to change the tense if the reporting verb is in the present, or if the original statement was about something that is still true / a universal truth, Examples: ● He says he has missed the train but he'll catch the next one. ● They explained that it is very difficult to find an honest politician. ● She told the children that the sun rises in the east. We used the indirect speech to report what we have heard from other people Let’s see some graphical examples!!
  5. 5. 5 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 Sorry, dear, I couldn’t hear you with the noise of the hairdryer. Did you say that Mary said that Peter and Sara … Did you know …? I saw Sara yesterday and she said “Peter and Mary are having an affear.” Martin got the sack last week.What? I can’t believe it. Who told you that he had got sack? It’s my weeding ring. My wife said I had to wear it here to stop me flirting with other female. No, dear! I said Sara told me that Peter and Mary were having an affair.

  7. 7. 7 FCE by Matifmarin GRAMMAR – UNIT 12 I am going to the opera this afternoon. I saw Cathy two days ago and she told me she was going to the opera that afternoon. There are also changes in time and adverbs in indirect speech. The common rules are the following: Today changes to that day/the same day Tomorrow changes to the next day/the following day Yesterday changes to the day before/the previous day Next week/month/year changes to the following week/month/year Last week/month/year changes to the previous week/month/year Now/just changes to then Ago changes to before Here changes to there This changes to that Ready for a little test?
