Reported Speech II: Commands

  1. 1. REPORTED SPEECH II:Commands<br />By Antonio Romero<br />
  2. 2. COMMANDS<br />Howabout if we want to report commands? Have a look<br />at these ones: <br />'Shut up, boys!' <br /> The teacher asked us to shut up. <br />'Don't speak, boys!‘<br /> The teacher asked us not to speak. <br />As you can see, the imperative tense has no subject in<br />English and the verb is used in infinitive without to.<br />Thus, if you want to report it, you have to use a to<br />infinitive (or not to-infinitive) as in the examples above.<br />We normally use the introductory verb ASK + object.<br />Shut up!!!!<br />
