ELC-34th Day - ChaunteesavaaN Din

34th Day - After Tense and Active Passive, Direct & Indirect is the most important part of English Language. Today also we will continue Direct Indirect.
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 - Exclamatory Sentences

Sentence that express strong feeling or emotions (like joy, sorrow, surprise, hatred, contempt, etc) are called exclamatory sentences. Exclamatory sentence ends with exclamation mark (!).

Vah vaakya jo prabal ahsaas ya bhaavanaao kee abhivyakti kare, Vismayaadibodhak vaakya kahlaataa hai. Vismayaadibodhak vaakyo ke ant meiN exclamation mark(!) aataa hai.

Rule no. 1

For making Indirect Speech of Exclamatory Sentence, 'Said' of Reporting Verb is changed according to the emotion of the 'Exclamatory Word' of Reporting Speech. A list of such words is given below.
