Indirect speech 間接引語

點擊收聽節目

在日常生活中我們經常需要引述別人的話或轉告一件事,這就涉及到間接引語的使用問題了。 Zeng Chenxiao 列舉的第一句話,表達不正確,錯就錯在沒有把疑問詞和動詞進行有效的轉換。當我們把 What's the matter? 這句問話轉換為一個陳述句時,就要說 He asked me what the matter was. 請試試看,能不能把以下四句話從直接引語轉換為間接引語,再從間接引語轉回到直接引語呢? What - What is her name? He asked me what her name was. How - How can I find her number? He asked me how he could find her number. Where - Where am I going to meet her? He asked me where he was going to meet her. When - When can you finish the job? He asked me when I could finish the job.
