Changing From Direct To Indirect

1. Direct speech में inverted commas का प्रयोग किया जाता है, किन्तु indirect में नहीं।
2. Direct speech में reporting verb जैसे- say, says, that इत्यादि के बाद comma रहता है जो indirect speech में हट जाता है।
For example:
(a) Hari says, “Sita is ill”.(Direct)
(a) Hari says that Sita is ill.(Indirect)
