Indirekte Rede/Reported speech


Bei der Übertragung der direkten Rede in die indirekte Rede, müssen zwei Regeln beachtet werden:

1.) Nur wenn der Einleitungssatz in der Vergangenheit steht, findet eine Zeitverschiebung im Hauptsatz statt.

Z.B. X said, Y explained, Z told us.

2.) In der Indirekten Rede müssen sowohl die Verbformen als auch die Pronomen und Orts- und Zeitangaben verändert werden.

Z.B. Lisa: "I will have a meeting with my co-workers tomorrow." Lisa said that she would have a meeting with her co-workers the next day.
