    When you report someone else’s statement in your own words without any change in the meaning of the statement Quoting a person’s words without using his own word and bringing about any change in the meaning of the statement is a reported speech.

    Reported or indirect speech is usually used to talk about the past, so we normally change the tense of the words spoken.

    We use reporting verbs like ‘say’, ‘tell’, ‘ask’, and we may use the word ‘that’ to introduce the reported words.

    “I love cheese sandwiches”. Finn said he loves cheese sandwiches. “What’s the time?” Finn asked what the time was.

    It’s When we want to report something that other person said.

    Present tenses change to past tense, except if the speaker is talking about something that is generally true, then the tense stays in the present.

    Say is used openly, whereas tell is used towards a specific person. For example “He said he wanted cake” “He told me he wanted cake”

    1. It’s the way of communicating what someone said without using quotes.
    2. They change to a past form.
    3. The verb “say” is used when someone communicates something someone else said publicly and the verb “tell” is used when something is communicated privately.
    4. An example of reported speech is: ‘Finn said you were hungry’ and another one is ‘he said he’d eaten his lunch’.
