Reported speech

Reported speech secara tidak langsung melaporkan apa yang dikatakan orang lain. Contoh:

  • Jane said she was so happy today.
  • The president said he needed a vacation.

Reported speech menggunakan bentuk lampau dari direct speech. Jadi jika direct speech dalam bentuk present tense, maka reported speech dalam bentuk past tense. Contoh:

Direct Speech – I said, “She is in her office.”
Reported Speech – I said she was in her office.

Apabila direct speech dalam bentuk past tense, maka reported speech menggunakan bentuk past perfect.

Direct Speech – I said, “She was in her office at lunchtime.”
Reported Speech – I said she had been in her office at lunchtime. atau – I said she was in her office at lunchtime.

Dalam bahasa Inggris moderen, bentuk past perfect sering tidak diperlukan untuk reported speech bentuk lampau, kita cukup menggunakan past simple tense.

Berikut beberapa bentuk kata kerja umum dalam direct dan reported speech

That

Reported speech sering diberikan sebagai bagian dari klausa-that, khususnya dalam bahasa tertulis dan bahasa yang lebih formal. Contoh:

Kedua kalimat ini bermakna sama, dan that bisa dihilangkan tanpa ada perubahan makna.
