Rules of Direct and Indirect Speech of Imperative Sentence

Narration change of imperative sentence

We change the “Reporting Verb” of direct speech into indirect speech according to the tense at the time of narration change. I have mentioned the reporting verb below.

 

Imperative    Sentence

Direct

Indirect

Say

Order/request/advise/command

[,]

Aff- to

Neg- not to

 

When we change the reported speech of imperative sentences, we use “Order/ request/ advise/ command” instead of “Say/ Say to”. Then we use “To” for affirmative sentences and “Not to” for negative sentences instead of comma marks.
