When a speech contains the exact words of a speaker, we call it direct speech. When the speech is reported by someone in his own words, it is called reported speech . In reported speech, the present tense changes to the past tense.
Example: ‘It is late’, he said. DIRECT SPEECH
He said that it was late. INDIRECT SPEECH Makinde said,
‘I am going home.’ DIRECT SPEECH
Makinde said that he was going home. INDIRECT SPEECH
When we report things that happen regularly, the verbs may not change.
A conjunction is a word which joins two words, phrases, clauses, or sentences together to complete their meaning. There are three major kinds of conjunctions: coordinating, subordinating, and correlative.
Coordinating conjunctions This conjunction is used to join two words, statements or clauses of equal status together. These conjunctions include: and, or, but.
Subordinating conjunctions This is a conjunction that is used to join two unequal statements, clauses, or phrases together. One part depends on the other for its full meaning. Examples of subordinating conjunctions are: before, after, since, because, when, although, though, if, who, which.
Correlative conjunctions This conjunction is used in pairs. Examples are: either … or, both …. and, neither … nor, not only … but also, whether … or.
