Reported Commands, Requests, Suggestons

Let’s learn how to report commands, requests and suggestions.

In reported commands, requests and suggestions we use such verbs as:

to order, to ask, to tell, to suggest, to beg, to advise, to forbid, to warn, to insist, to promise, to agree, to refuse, to remind, etc. after which according to the construction of the introductory verbs we use

  • to-infinitive
  • not to-infinitive
  • -ing form (Gerund)

“Move over, will you?” Helen said to Nelly. – Helen asked Nelly to move over.

“Don’t speak all at a time,” the teacher said to her class. – The teacher told the class not to speak all at a time.

An object pronoun (me, you, him, her, us, them) + to-infinitive is used after the verbs to ask, to advise, to beg, to command, to invite, to remind, to order, to warn.

“You should see a doctor,” he said. – He advised me to see a doctor.

A that-clause is used afte the verbs to agree, to complain, to deny, to exclaim, to promise, to suggest.

“Yes, it’s a interesting film,” she said. – She agreed that it was an interesting film.

“I din’t use your brush,” he said. – He denied that he had used my brush.

We don’t normally use the word please in the reported speech.

Упражнения по теме «REPORTED SPEECH»

When statements, questions, commands, requests, and other utterances are reported later with a reporting verb in the past, the original tenses move one step back in time. This basic rule can be summarised as follows:

Present Tence — Past Tense

Present Perfect Tense — Past Perfect Tense

Past Tense — Past Perfect Tense

Future Tense — conditional

Future Perfect Tense — conditional perfect

The Past Perfect Tense cannot move back in time so it stays the same. Conditionals and subjunctives also remain unchanged.

Conditionals and subjunctives which do not relate to time do not change.

eg «If I had enough money I’d buy it.» — He said that if he had enough money, he’d buy it.

«I wish I could remember his name.» — She said she wished she could remember his name.

«I’d rather he was coming too.» — She said she’d rather he was coming too.

Orders and instructions change either to:

a. An infinitive construction introduced by told, ordered, etc:
eg «Sit down» — He told me to sit down.

«Don’t say a word» — He told me not to say a word.

b. A construction with was/were (not) to :
eg «Wait in this room until you are called.»

They said I was to wait in the room until I was called.

a. The following auxiliary verbs always change :
can/cannot — could/couldn’t

b. The following auxiliary verbs do not change when they are used with the meaning given below.

might He said he might come later.

could/could not She said the key could be lost,

(to express possibility or impossibility)

should/ought to I told him he should be more careful.

(to express advisability or

must He said I must be joking,

(to express a conclusion)

must (not)/need not She told me I needn’t stay late,

(to express obligation or lack of obligation)

c. Did not need to changes to had not needed to but needn ‘t have doesn’t change.

Exercise 1. Change the following sentences into reported speech. Use link words where possible.

a. «You might catch the 6 o’clock train, if you hurry.» (They told me. )

b. «I couldn’t have a small dog as a pet. My flat’s too small.» (I explained. )

c. «You must be exhausted! You haven’t had a break all day.» (She exclaimed. )

g. «I’d rather you didn’t tell anyone what I’ve just told you.» (He said. )

h. «I may be able to give you a lift but I won’t know until the morning.» (She explained. )

i. «I couldn’t find my door key. That’s why I broke a window.» (He told the policeman. )

j. «She should be delighted when she hears the news.» (They told us. )

Requests and Suggestions

a. Reporting verbs like ask, beg, warn, etc. take a personal object + full infinitive:

eg He asked us to wait for him. begged

b. When ask is used to report a request for permission it is followed by if + subject + could/might:

eg We asked if we could record the speech.

More usually, it takes either a pronoun+full infinitive or a (that clause:

eg He recommended us to visit the City Museum.

that we should visit the City Museum.

Questions with yes/no answers are reported with /for whether:

eg «Will you be late home?» — She asked if I would be late home.

Questions with question words (How, When, Who, etc.) reported with the same question word:

eg «How long are you staying?» — They asked how long I was staying.

The auxiliary do is not used in reported questions and normal word order is followed.

eg «What does the word ‘supersede’ mean?» –I asked what the word ‘supersede’ meant.

«What is the time?» –I asked what the time was.

Exercise 2. Use one of the introductory verbs to report each of the following sentences. Each of the verbs should be used only once. Use link words where appropriate.

warn ask encourage urge

recommend suggest advise beg

a. «Please sit down and make yourself at home», our hostess said.

b. «Don’t touch the Record button», my friend said. «You could erase the tape.»
