ELC-31st Day - Page-2

31st Day - After Tense and Active Passive, Direct & Indirect is the most important part of English Language. We are going to start this topic today.
We can report any Speech to another person either in the same words (known as Direct Speech or Direct Narration) OR report the speech in our words without changing the meaning (known as Indirect Speech or Indirect Narration).

Direct-Indirect Speech - Simple Sentences

Rule No. 6

In all simple tenses, Comma (,) and Inverted Commas ("...") are removed and word 'That' is used to join both the parts.

सभी simple tense में Comma (,) और Inverted Commas ("...") को हटा कर शब्द 'That' का प्रयोग दोनों भागो को जोड़ने में करते है ।

Rule No. 7

For changing to Indirect Speech, Pronouns of Reported Speech are changed as per "S O N = 1 2 3" Rule.

S = Subject 1 = First Person
O = Object 2 = Second Person
N = No Change 3 = Third Person

If Person of Pronoun of Reported Speech is___ Rule Change the Person of Pronoun as per Reporting Verb's___
First Person S Subject
Second Person O Object
Third Person N No Change


Indirect Speech में परिवर्तन होने पर रिपोर्टेड़ स्पीच के Pronouns को "S O N = 1 2 3" के रूल से परिवर्तन करते है ।

*** If Reporting Verb does not have 'Object', then for changing 2nd Person of Reporting Speech, we can assume any Person and make sentence accordingly. See example no 6.

*** अगर Reporting verb में 'Object' ना हो तब Reporting Speech के 2nd Person को बदलने के लिये हम कोई भी Person मान सकते है और वाक्य बना सकते है । देखो उदाहरण no. 6 ।

For changing Person, please note that if Person is plural, it will be changed to plural and if person is possessive, it will be changed to possessive pronouns. Helping Verbs of Reported Speech in Indirect Speech get changed as per changed Pronoun.

Person का परिवर्तन करते समय यह ध्यान रखे की यदि Person बहुवचन है तो परिवर्तन बहुवचन में होगा और यदि Person, possessive है तो यह possessive Pronoun में परिवर्तित होगा । अप्रत्यक्ष कथन के Reported Speech की सहायक क्रियांए परिवर्तित Pronoun के अनुसार बदल जाती है - देखे example no. 5 - 'am' को 'was' से बदला गया है ।
