DIRECT SPEECH (initial or end position)

The following two B1 points are only different in the order.

Point 4 in REPORTED SPEECH is defined as:

DIRECT SPEECH, REPORTING CLAUSE, INITIAL POSITION: report speech and thought directly, using the reporting verb before the reporting clause

Point 9 is

END POSITION:

report speech and thought directly using the reporting verb after the reporting clause

*B2 can do it in the middle position and also with inversion.


FOR EXAMPLE:

When I asked a woman about medical attention, she laughed, and she said, “Oh, no, no. The only attention you get from the guards in there is sexual.”
