Reported Speech

  1. 1. Reported Speech<br />“Friends” teach u how 2 do it!!<br />
  2. 2. How do you recognise Direct Speech?<br />You have “…..”<br />Or the name of the person speaking is given<br />At the end, or at the beginning, of the “…” sentence you have a reporting verb.<br />Ex: say; tell; ask; answer; order, etc.<br />
  3. 3. Example!<br />PHOEBE: Ok, so this is pretty much what&apos;s happened so far. Ross was in love with Rachel since, you know, forever, but every time he tried to tell her, something kind of got in the way, like cats, and Italian guys. Finally Chandler was like &quot;forget about her&quot; but when Ross was in China on his dig, Chandler let it slip that Ross was in love with Rachel. She was like, &quot;Oh my god.&quot; So she went to the airport to meet him when he came back, but what she didn&apos;t know was, that Ross was getting off the plane with another woman. Uh-Oh! So, that&apos;s pretty much everything you need to know. But, enough about us. So, how&apos;ve you been?<br />RACHEL: Oh my god. Oh my god. Excuse me. Emergency! Excuse me! <br />ROSS: Rache!<br />RACHEL: Oh, there you are! Hi! Oh, so, so, how was China, you?<br />ROSS: It was, it was great. Oh, what happened?<br />RACHEL: What?<br />ROSS: You&apos;re bleeding. <br />RACHEL: I am? Oh, look at that, yes I am. Enough about me, enough about me, Mr. Back from the Orient. I wanna hear everything!<br />
  4. 4. Definition<br />Indirect Speech<br />(aka &apos;reported speech&apos;)<br />It refers to a sentence reporting what someone has said. It is almost always used in spoken English. <br />
  5. 5. Direct vs Reported Speech<br />Ok, so this is pretty much what&apos;s happened so far. Ross was in love with Rachel since, you know, forever, but every time he tried to tell her, something kind of got in the way, like cats, and Italian guys. Finally Chandler was like &quot;forget about her&quot; but when Ross was in China on his dig, Chandler let it slip that Ross was in love with Rachel. She was like, &quot;Oh my god.&quot; So she went to the airport to meet him when he came back, but what she didn&apos;t know was, that Ross was getting off the plane with another woman. Uh-Oh! So, that&apos;s pretty much everything you need to know. But, enough about us. So, how&apos;ve you been?<br />Is Phoebe talking directly to you, is she telling you a conversation she had?<br />
  6. 6. Have you noticed something?<br />“Ok, so this is pretty much what&apos;s happened so far. Ross was in love with Rachel since, you know, forever, but every time he tried to tell her, something kind of got in the way, like cats, and Italian guys. Finally Chandler was like &quot;forget about her&quot; but when Ross was in China on his dig, Chandler let it slip that Ross was in love with Rachel. She was like, &quot;Oh my god.&quot; So she went to the airport to meet him when he came back, but what she didn&apos;t knowwas, that Ross was getting off the plane with another woman. Uh-Oh! So, that&apos;s pretty much everything you need to know. But, enough about us. So, how&apos;ve you been?”<br />Direct Speech signal<br />Direct Speech marker<br />Direct Speech marker<br />Direct Speech signal<br />Direct Speech signal<br />Direct Speech marker<br />Direct Speech signal<br />Direct Speech signal<br />

  9. 9. At the airport…<br />Reported Speech?<br />Direct Speech?<br />Oh, there you are! Hi! Oh, so, so, how was China, you?<br />What?<br />I am? Oh, look at that, yes I am. Enough about me, enough about me, Mr. Back from the Orient. I wanna hear everything!<br />It was, it was great. Oh, what happened? <br />You&apos;re bleeding. <br />What type of speech is this?<br />
  10. 10. Before you report the episode<br />When you write your report, the dialogue (Direct Speech) is already over, it is already past.<br />So, in the Indirect Speech, you need to use verb tenses that express this idea of action already past.<br />
  11. 11. Direct Speech episode: 9:00<br />Reporting the episode: 12:00<br />
  12. 12. Rachel telling Monica(late at night)<br />Com’on Rache. Tell me what happened!<br />Yes, I do!<br />You don’t wanna know!<br />First I exclaimed that there he was. Second I greeted him saying hi, then I asked how China had been.<br />Ross answered it had been great and then asked what had happened. But I didn’t understand so I asked what and he replied that I was bleeding.<br />
  13. 13. Notice the differences…<br />At the airport<br />Oh, there you are! <br />Late at night telling Monica<br />First I exclaimed that there hewas. <br />
  14. 14. “There youare”<br />Attention!<br />Change in verb tense<br />Change in <br />Personal Pronouns<br />I exclaimed there hewas.<br />
  15. 15. Notice the differences…<br />At the airport<br />Hi! Oh, so, so, how wasChina, you?<br />Late at night telling Monica<br />Second I greeted him, then I asked how Chinahad been.<br />
  16. 16. “Oh, so, so, how wasChina, you?”<br />New verb tense<br />Introducing verb<br />Attention!<br />New word order<br />then I asked how Chinahad been.<br />
  17. 17. There he was:<br />Simple Past<br />“there you are”: Simple Present<br />
  18. 18. Simple Past<br />Past Perfect<br />Past Continuous<br />Present Perfect<br />Present <br />Continuous<br />Simple Present<br />
