Merubah direct speech menjadi indirect speech pada kalimat mengandung "say, says, will say"
Jika dalam suatu kalimat direct speech kita menemukan kata "say/says/will say", maka jangan merubah tensesnya saat kita merubahnya ke bentuk kalimat indirect speech.
DS: Direct Speech
IS: Indirect Speech
Contoh kalimat perubahan DS ke IS:
DS: He says,” I was a fool then”
IS: He says he was a fool then.
DS: She says,” I will be more experienced then”
IS: She says she will be more experienced then
DS: I will say, ” He loves cricket’
IS: I will say he loves cricket
DS: She will say,” He was in the land of nod then”
IS: She will say he was in the land of nod then.
DS: They will say,” We will achieve greatness”
IS : They will say we will achieve greatness.
Perhatikan contoh-contoh di atas! Pada direct speech (DS) kita menemukan "say/says/will say", maka tenses yang digunakan pada kalimat langsung tidak mengalami perubahan.
DS : Rio says, “The cat eats the fish.”
IS : Rio says the cat eats the fish.
DS : Antoni says. “ My mother is beautiful.”
IS : Antoni says his mother is beautiful.
DS : Alvin says, “ Jambi is a clean city.”
IS : Alvin says Jambi is a clean city.
